"What will you let yourself know? What will you allow yourself to know?"
-Alexander Chee



You living with yourself, a fool.
Do you recognise the truth?
It's the trail left
wet behind you -
the moist
skinless 
you.

Out in the world,

you cannot trust yourself.

a bit of wood

...before this body will be lying on the ground, discarded and unconscious, likely a useless bit of wood....
3.41 dhammapada




it so happens
this scrap
kept the door open or,

closed,
latched
against the wind



the broken net
gets tangled
we stop, start,
slant (descant)
where that is
where what is
where this is
