“they go forwards past

the inclination

darkening corners to form”

–Clark Coolidge


you turned without seeing

the I half-a-step behind


you turned without seeing

the more obvious direction


the direction more obvious

to others standing apart


later this now blossomed

angles to bend new visions


you saw without turning

for they were all yours


ahead of you stumbling behind

the direction more obvious


if only the now could hold

despite its dark form hold


yet edges form corners

and corners form edges


as any form of redemption

turns and then turns again
