getting to the bottom

December 3, 2011 § 1 Comment

operating along a gradient
reaching conciously for the
answer sweating a third empty
on the metal table in the yard
– not a perfect solution
just one proper for
a particular bother

a transliteration
of gestures for
this gatekeeper of sleep
a translation not required
it knows
accepting whatever amount
one tolls up
and with gloved hand
swings the
gate inward
