ANNOINTING THE WHEELS OF REASON

“Why must I use millions of years
of dead plants and animals
to turn my wheels”,
he exclaimed!

“I don't want to keep
 my head stuck in the ground.
 I don't want to travel heavy.

I want to travel light
that I might reflect upon the open door
before flesh is rendered
and gravity grinds my bones into dust”
