to be idle...

to be idle
what does it take?
what does it take, but to cease


cease the push
cease the verbs and adverbs
cease being driven by plot


to be idle
what it takes is
right here
right here, with eyes not blurred
and ears not dimmed
dulled by the commotion that snatches up truth


to float here un-navigated
drifted only by the breeze
the breeze of this august morning
silent and still, in the absolute 
absolute promise of this moment


to be idle is
just 
this

knowing
