These two things marvel me:
how a man enters into his head
with the map he inherited from
his father, walks the winding paths,
until he is lost!
how a man hides from death
by standing behind his breath,
covering the nakedness of his
ghost with leaves of hope.
but isn’t hope as cactus?
green & thorny-
healing you today
& hurting you tomorrow?
Don’t let anyone tell you
that hope is the herb
which cures all ailments.

"...but sometimes, the sky breaks into dawn with the proclamation of
thunderclaps & gloomy downpours, instead of the gaiety of sunshine,
as if to say that it, too, is still learning the art of joyfulness."
