It Just Is

                                     The Angel Oak, South Carolina . . . 1400 years old

She says ta me, It Just Is

She’s got lots of money, but I don’t.

So she says ta me, It Just Is.

Ten thousand civilians killed
in Afghanistan.
Not doin’ a thing.

So she says ta me, It Just Is.

Two years in a row with zero increase
to live in a dying empire.

So she says ta me, It Just Is.

Prisons are stuffed to the gills.

So she says ta me, It Just Is.

A river of beings in a murk of a flow.
They Go.

So she says ta me, It Just Is.

Traumatized at birth, she pulled in
from the world.

So she says ta me, It Just Is.

The drench of a rain down the trunk
of that tree.

So she says ta me, It Just Is.

Someone who hears how the rain
washes pain.

So she says ta me, It Just Is.

She tells her Buddhist psychologist
about a recent meltdown.

So she says ta me, It Just Is.

Her horses were wild,
but they’re now reconciled.

She Charioteers by watching her breath.

So she says ta me, It Just Is.
