Poetry

by Phil Brown

 

A Stationary Poem

I have not climbed mountains
or crossed rivers
in my quest.

Sitting, sitting and sitting
Is what I have done.

It's the stationary school
of philosophy.
You just keep still.

I met a man who had travelled the world
and been nowhere.

He came over to my house
and shouted, "Move you bastard!"

I blinked.

He went away
and travelled some more.

I got a dirty postcard from him
some years later.

And I blinked again.

But I hadn't moved.
