Deliquescence by the sea


we all walk down that path
and let attention wander
in tangent to the latest bend
what lay ahead
in forward motion
when circumstance
forged a new curve
into the binding
smooth walked trail

as if we could go on
off road for long
enough to make an impact

we all stand by that pond
to sense real life
elusive out of reach
and patiently wait
for nonexistent currents
a gust of impotent wind
to bring promises
into our open hands

as if chaos theory fractals
were beneficial fairies
heeding to our wish
and curving logic
to please whims

we all dream
for something larger
than a tepid trifle's
twin edged kiss
something more
than this

for midwinter bloom
angels on pins
and elephants
though the needle's eye
we all dream of this
but do we know why?
