5: he’s thought all this through for you

with superfluous grace
he shows you the way
waving you down
his well-defined path
don’t think too much
about whether to go
your freedom to choose
is just part of his show
loyalty lies
like so many things
in the polished truncheon
of his outstretched hand

(from a work in progress: “Arcana,” November 5, 2013)
