after the cut

May 22, 2015 § 1 Comment

the bandage 

ended up just south

of the wound 
blood lost


with the scale of persistence 
push one foot forward

drag the other 

holding out that

with each drop a

marigold will grow

in the path forged
don’t ponder too long

about it all


is just 

energy transferred 

every pulse

pumping another

onto the way
for those 

who harvest
