Tai Chi Straight Sword Love



all we have here
is the steady marching of seconds

and words melt downward
     so much
                     jargon just
over each

I have to wonder why
we keep climbing these steps when we know
the escalator is descending

so don't tell me to explain
or ask me to speak

- it's already the fourth watch
and in the pre-dawn light
I'm on the lake waiting for Him to change my motion
