across the Grain

Pisces Two

She swims upstream
where the piranahs cannot go.

I float still,
resting in the shifting current.

The Last Word

You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait. Do not even wait, be quite still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstacy at your feet.
