freestyle sonnet #035: STOKED TO DO IMPOSSIBLE WORK

I am stoked to do impossible work - those things
which seem daunting, too overgrown with emotion
(not to mention difficulties such action brings).
I'm stoked to gather together with devotion

to collectively attend to matters far more
important than dollars or acknowledgements made
to intellectual ownership. I am for
"I" becoming absorbed by "we", forgetting paid

instead of getting paid, until we're all covered -
meaning shelter both psychic and physical, 'til
safety nets catch all. All new "free" worlds discovered
are really just same shared native space, so when will

"I" become "we", and when will "we" all become stoked
to accomplish impossible work unprovoked?

- with much love to & for Dr. Liz Canfield
