Be My Last Because

All I ask of you:
Be my slow-motion dance.
Be my birthday earthquake.
Be my spiral marble staircase in the middle of a Vermont meadow.
Be my handstand on a barstool,
my whirlwind week in clown school,
my joke shared with a Siberian shaman
while shopping for T-shirts at Sears.
Be my last because.

All I ask of you:
Be my puzzle with one piece missing.
Be my ripe pomegranate floating in a blue plastic swimming pool on the first day of winter.
Be the imaginary conversations I have with Thomas Jefferson while watching the news on TV.
Be the waves crashing on my beach in the south of France in the 22nd century
and the song that my great-grandmother wrote for my great-granddaughter.
Be my golden hammer resting on a mossy rock
I’ve known for 10,000 years.

“All I Ask of You” is from the soundtrack for the book”Pronoia Is the Antidote for Paranoia: How the Whole World Is Conspiring to Shower You with Blessings”
