Say something

'Plain quoters are a dozen a dime
So add your take don't lay it bare'
'About a craftsman in his prime
An explanation I shall dare
When it's a True Artist I'm

Contended just to gape and stare
Perhaps write a doodling rhyme

And just proceed to humbly share'


From 'Chicago Zen' by AKR

Watch your step, watch it, I say,
especially at the first high
threshold,

and the sudden low
one near the end
of the flight

of stairs,

and watch
for the last
step that's never there.
