knowing

"knowing" - 1/12/04

that ambivalence eventually
breaks through walls
wise thieves would
dread to down

realizations
become their own
kind of crazy
feckless freedom fighters

because no matter how
this chapter rests
the rhythm exists
in all of

us

of benevolence ritually
taking great falls
like sacred breaths
of weeping trees

fascinations
are their own
winding reward
shameless dancing misers

grace

that intolerance mysteriously
shakes off dust
with time's permission
as winter leaves

accept their fall
blindly following paths

forged with wind
