11: with all equanimity

as if any given can be divined
as to its true justification
yes no yes no yes separated until
the true binary collapses to one
which is squarely seen to be no
more than what is said to be
stripped clean of any tacit
obligations to more than now
without causality’s shades clouding
stark judgment’s clear sight
as she lays her lidless eyes upon my life
then turns upon the detritus
to make similar claims upon it all
(from a work in progress: “Arcana,” November 10, 2013)
