Unexpectedly

I slip upon certainty

So I unravel

***

In the beginning,

Though I can't recall, I'm sure,

Therein lies my end.

***

I sat by water

As the sun rose before me

A Sandwich of Life

***

In expectations -

In their very subversion -

There lies the sublime.

***

Take lead from the Fool:

Knowing nothing, nothing hurts.

All is feasible.

***

What is worse than hate?

An ass, between two hay bales

Starving to its death

***

Clouded behind words

In time clouds pass, but so too

Does that which they shroud

***

A star darts away

Failing to see, all the while

It's already caught

***

Are humans that scared

Of a reality that

They cannot cling to?

***

Tracing the path back

Each day a new regression -

I find my future
