if not the gods them-

you and i still stop

you and i still stop
for the possibilities
of mutant clovers

sometimes – faith, hope, love, luck – caught
growing between every gap

we are all more or

it takes the right sort

it takes the right sort
of conditions to grow
a leap of
faith – no degree
of card-carrying
can grant you
that particular
moonstruck
privilege

our curves remain

our curves remain
faithful to one
another after
all these
years,
we
only
choose
to forget,
scared to conform

there are inconstant

there are inconstant
layers
to leaving –
there is
the moment of
departure, then
the sudden
bittersweet
minute a week
later, the same
stuck second
after one
year – none
of it, a reflection,
all of it, a generous
helping, an
inexact savoring

balanced at the edge

balanced at the edge
of a rabbit year into
the head of the
dragon, we brush
off our old coats,
take a leap
into the unknown,
and allow
determination
and faith

to catch us

on the evanescent

on the evanescent
edge of folklore
and fairytale,
between the shimmer
of legend and myth
,
we are always
practicing someone
else’s composition
of faith – perfecting
the sudden
trills, being stuck
polishing the bass.
and even when
we have achieved
the desired
articulation for
devotion,
the subtlest
stirring can fumble
the smallest
melodic gesture

every morning, tripping

every morning, tripping
nervously, two by
two, a flock of
canadian geese try
to display the most
common of
courtesies – having
faith in one another
