Monkey Mind

Occupying that zone
In the middle of the mind
Between memory and fantasy
The bit that says now
And here and be
Which in any case
Is the natural habitat
Of every other creature
And tree and stone
There is a monkey
It’s a boy monkey
It wants to be loved
It wants to be held
It wants to breathe
It wants to be at peace
And it proclaims all these things
In a very loud voice
Sometimes into the darkness
Sometimes in time to music
Sometimes in poetry
The monkey mind is scared
And it is excited too
It wants it all now
And it gives it all away
It has a thing or two
To learn
And some work
To do
