Well being
is effected by desires
when perseverance has seemed unrewarded
the shadows cast change the look of everything
here patience is discovered
like the sighting of a creature
believed to be mythical
your heart has written you a letter
and everyone pauses as you open it
the journey seems more a departure
than a setting off
and the result is that you are once again younger
wounds, riches, and revelations swim in your mind
as you think down from the sky.

all I've been given is treasure
ravished and left with pounds of pearls
careless childhood baits me
resting on the collapsed
a woman's mind is keen
while yet warm from the bedroom
temperance is closer than it seems
and prudence more liberating than it seems.
