Watch your step, my loves --
Now that you're willing
to travel deeper,
you may find the contents of the bins
have shifted in flight;
that there's a lot of movement
here at sea level.
Tread lightly,
watch for low-flying emotions.
Look both ways before you step;
not everyone's on the boat yet --
some late arrivals,
old thoughts from long ago
may show up suddenly,
knock you sideways
if you're not looking.
Here (I heard, as I stood there,
clinging to the railing)
-- hold my hand: I'll be your guide --
and now it's safe: throw caution to the winds!
