Crossing a shallow riverbed

I found alarm at arms length.
In the crevice between rocks

A snake lied in wait:

Its nose above the glassy surface,

Its body slanted in the passing current.
I wasn’t close enough to see

The shapes of the pupils watching me

But I had plenty the mind

To look quick and find

A different path for us to take

And thus avoided Mrs. Snake.

Be a brittle man with brutal hands

Or a brutal man with brittle hands?

…No

Lying on the floor

No place my body can fall

Peace of mind.

Walking in circles
Wishing for clarity
Waiting for coffee.

955

Refusing to slip
– From where I am – to where I’ll go –
Except for sleep.
