Scorpion

Dejection from the first crestfallen moment
became
grounds for rejection
objecting
to a glib appreciation
of the gravitas of trust
given
and all
that is left is a conviction
that the truth
will render itself self evident...
time is all there is to love.
This morning's green apples
were a struggle with paranoia
an
abject
                          confusion
the crying child
inside
this madness
that is realism
touching the ground only
in
down
to
earth
moral positions
knowing only that
courage is needed
to take the
next
step,
courage
to
continue
with a life
buffetted
as it is
with abstractions
with contexts.
Pained love
is not the same
as love of pain.
This spirit is
the love of play
is
delight in love
appreciation
of wisdom
fascination with experience.
i read the hypotyposis
in your poems
and wonder ...
as far
removed
from
reality
as i may seem to be
i do see
some things ...
my dreams
drive me
as much as
anyone's
and
mistakes are
but
contingencies
to these:
                                    the scorpion
                                       will still strike
                              at love.
