from a work in progress: “process, not a journey” (31)

in the interim silence

he waited

as if the inevitable

were inevitable


this ritual opened a space

easy enough

to occupy because expected

even allowed


he could feel safe

for the time it took

to take 

what bit of dominion

was left to him

what scrap of language

he cold manifest

as a disguise
