on an evening like this

when the combination
of breeze and low sun
is just right

nothing is
bothersome
and it’s quiet enough
to catch up on
thoughts that matter

when I think
how truly lucky a man
would be that,
regardless of the form
the knife takes –
whether a look
a word
an action
a wish
whatever the form,
how lucky
he would be
to have
an angel knock
it from his grip

if luck holds out
long enough
he will learn to not
take up the knife
in the first place
