it is looking more and
more likely that
we have been weighing
the wrong things, counting

can’t wrap our heads
around. we have
disassociated, splintered,
fractured ourselves for
too long to contain
so much, we can’t
be reliable data

values, even words
are no longer
enough, nor
meaningful

towards purpose, meander
for a meaning, hands growing numb

in the beginning,

in the beginning,
the middle, and the end, we
will bump into the

contours of life, be tempted to
break free, tumble into light

the history of

the history of
us is complicated – working
together, we can

reach the greatest heights and dig
ourselves into the deepest depths

across every lake,

across every lake,
there is a bench
and the promise
of a seat
when you
are ready
