IMPULSE
by Robert K. Johnson

Please finish up,
Mr. Preacher, and leave
this corner spotó
bustling
with hurriers-byó

                because
I want to do
something ridiculous
thatíll bring me
rippling joy.

I want to take
your placeó
                but
instead of shouting
Bible-verse advice,

Iím going to shout:
ďLetís make everything
we do today
be like the opening notes
of Claire de lune
