ex horto

This is an unliveable age

inhuman paradigms abound


strength     guile      patience

instinct, training and resilience


fall short

severally or alone


it takes an impossible thing

to tie the wolf down


Your frame must be beyond adamant

your thoughts must travel through glass

your drift must be soundless


Or you could stretch


a vulnerably mammal hand 

to stir the dust


haul yourself back 

into living chaos


to a treasure of sense


learn to allow give and forgive take

to keep safe and be free with trust


there is no map to it that isn’t

printed in feet and

counted in smiles
