My friend had a poem something like this:

Before you are going
to come into my bed
take off at least
your shoes...

That's great--actually something I needed to do earlier, after taking a walk which ended up being partly in the Wissahickon Creek, but didn't, so brought sand into the house again--and of course that's exactly what's great about it--taking the care in these lines about something I'm not mindful enough to do in life.

thanks for the kind words, yogaforcynics. :) nice that you can go out and walk somewhere where there's sand... none of that here unfortunately... :(
