Come Outside

patient and quiet,
it waits
on the last step of your porch
and forgives
each hour you spend
wading through your murky soul

Each second,
it times
the laps you run
 around your crowded mind
of cloned faces applauding
when you smile
and booing
when you cry

It waits without knocking
sitting on the chance
you will come outside
like an egg
that will one day crack itself
to meet the world

You can imagine what it's like
and fly on every fantasy
that will always
crash land you home

or you can
slide down the banister
that leads to your front door
Go out and meet its smile
and learn everything there is to know
about togetherness
each day
for the rest of your life
