NO EXCUSE

No excuse–
do not defer–

let your life’s engine
rev and hum and purr
and drive along
and get somewhere. . .

Take along–
+++++but calm
+++++with your breath–
inner resistance
that clings for life
and has felt surer
with no air. . .

Otherwise,
you may as well
allow an outer saboteur
to enter
in your turf
and run round loose. . .

And, in that,
there’d be no use.
