“Look at him now in the mirror dreaming
What is happening in his head?”
–Pete Townsend
If what you are confessing
falls like a tree
into incomprehension,
or at least distraction,
can it lead toward redemption?
If your words dance like fairies
in a ring delighting the air,
yet vanish when looked at
directly, did you say
anything at all?
If your pride hides
your foolishness from yourself
like a fat man hides his toes,
to whom do you apologize
when you begin to fall?
(February 2013)
