      The passage ended in our dance of form and enlightenment.
      In the afternoon, over tea cups,
      our warmth pressing us, without clinging,
      we spoke and smiled there, felt and saw feeling there
      and with simplicity, we never hid or hurt each other.
      Open and centered, the meal had been served.

         Here, where the center most gears spin,
         here is the distillation of what I'm doing here
         and I carry that moment timeless within me,
            though my passions may rage a thousand times,
         always ... it is like a spark.
         A bit melodramatic, now that the band's past,
            but there is something there.

         Else why can I here the winds go whistling
            in the midnight hour freight trains running
         through my soul?
