The Things We Have To Do

time lapse photography of people walking on pedestrian lane

We have to do what we are doing,

the things we see ourselves doing,

where our body is,


its physical, weighted placement in space,

bones moving at joints,

how and as they do:

this action,

these actions.

It can be only those,

not others.

Can’t know why, just the way it is,

all of us bodies

in it

as one, together,

one stream of movement,

action, activity, behavior

flowing with time.

There is no way out,

a phenomenon of nature,

a natural necessity.

It’s not about what we want to do.

It’s about what we have to do.

We all have to do only this.
