The Eightfold Path


Right Labor

What does not change
is the will to change
the humans on the train,
to know more humans
than one has to
who are the humans
on the trains
that go unchanged,
and changing,
as the humans do,
on platforms of the stars,
with windows which are
windows of the starlight
of the trains, with windows
of the humans which are
windows of the night,
bereft of coffee, bereft
of windows, bereft
beneath the stars,
the changed and lovely
humans that are
humans on the trains,
arranged, awaiting
for the will to change
to make arrange
the will they have
to change.
