Passing Through

by Alan Harris
I'm only a guest here?

Everything provided.
Need a bed?
Have a bed.
Need an arm?
Have two.
Heart and brain?
No problem.

But what to do here?

Everything provided.
forests and farms,
books and libraries,
churches, holy words,
other people to
do things with.

But what to be here?

Though only a guest,
do rearrange things,
attract and repel others,
leave your mark on
a world full of
everybody's marks.

Thank you.
I won't stay long.
