The Body-Spirit Knows

Because the Body-Spirit knows what the mind does not…
In this apartment building,
mindset of four walls,
we are all together
but I do not stop to think
or think this way with every thought
but my nose knows
when delicious vapors drift
into my nostrils as a gift
at meal time next door
our common condition – hunger
reminds us artfully
we all long and taste and drift
out of our containers and domains of skin
and gift our neighbors, our fellows within
container of consciousness, this planet
a rounded hoola-hooper
we turn all together
