Sunrise in the Waves

The body appears to bear
No allegiance to the world.
It lets its mind, connected

To other minds outside it,
Worry about grave matters.
The body just keeps living

As selfishly as allowed.
The mind is put out. Other
Minds manage to get bodies

To do extraordinary,
Helpful, selfless, or at least
Terribly ambitious things.

How is it that this body
Can’t be bothered to do more
Than ache, eat, and sometimes sleep?

The body’s not listening.
It’s paddling madly as it
Disintegrates in the waves.
