"How to Settle a Restless Soul"
You must submit
To your need to wander.
Sleep on corners.
Walk a foreign shore.
Eat a foreign fruit.
When your soul has been shaken up enough
Inside this snow globe called life
Set the snow globe down for a while
And watch it all swirl towards the bottom.
Once you've wondered around a bit
Go back home.
Adopt a dog.
Sit on the porch.
Plant a garden.
Find a long-term lover.
Fill the garden with vegetables you could eat everyday,
And make the lover a homegrown one from some local farm.
Leave the snow globe on the table for a while
And notice that without all those specks flying around
The little village inside appears quite agreeable.
