I Want to Tell You Something

If you shoot an arrow, make sure you know
where it’s aiming, and which way the breeze,
and whether your hands are steady enough,
or whether you really should be trusted
with an arrow after all. Or a Jart.

If you fix a bike, remember to carry
a rag to wipe your hands afterwards;
otherwise things will get awkward
when the lady at the grocery store

offers you a sample and you have to
reach into a bowl on the fold-up table.
A bowl on a table is something to consider,
though probably not for very long at a time.
Now that I’ve mentioned it, that may be enough.
