and another poem starts with and
as if whatever conversation happened
never came to a complete stop but instead
side-stepped slightly to avoid an onrushing
bull or to not slip on an unpleasant event
hidden deeply in the minutia of the day
each detail fitting perfectly together
after the fact as if all along intentional
yes from the start A equated C equated
B but never so tangential as all that
to cause a complete collapse of our city
until what remained was the final and
because then again it bends back around
to almost but almost catch his tail again
(November 2012)
