from a work in progress: “process, not a journey” (44)

the ball clacks

from red to black

a cord turns

this way then that


they say yes they

say no as if

saying makes it so


it’s certainly true

he held out his hand

such a simple man

while her fingers

traced along a wall

wanting nothing

nothing at all


then they turn again

loops through loops

doubled and troubled

a move to the left

a move to the right

chains held them o so tight


this is our day

one more song

and one last wrong
