poetry

Yes – but what to? / This side of the rock …

And you ask me to say yes …

… and you beg me

and you ready me

and you unsettle me

and you settle me

and you lose me,

and so you loosen me

and simultaneously unloosen me, child,

and make out I am quite

too wild

for this side of the rock

where the thoughts never stop;

 

and then finally …

… you have left me,

and then finally ….

… you have bereft me.
