The Power of Apathy

The power of apathy,
I just do not care.

It allows freedom of concern
for who's in front, the reds or blues.
the gray or the bay,
or 6 or 12.

The economy of attention,
to mind that which matters,
but the negative word, apathy,
does he wish not to be heard.

We can define positive,
that which is,
or we can define negatively,
that which it is not,
yet when we speak,
attention is lost on that which is not.

Yet of mindfulness,
there is a uproar, a big push, a thirst,
Yet what it is not,
the opportunity cost of mindfulness,
ignoring of some things, apathy,
the praises are not sung.

To try to make sense or the push with pull,
the ying without yang
and yet the world is held together with the attractions,
but not to close by the repulsions,
physics tells us so.

We humans are like pebbles in the stream bed,
touching but separate, sometimes,
big stone to big stone.
If reworked, or ice laid,
the fines separate us for a touch of geology.

But what do I know?
Be well, breath deeply,
smile easily, and enjoy what life has to offer.
