through the forest -




SOMETIMES
 
Sometimes
if you move carefully
through the forest
 
breathing
like the ones
in the old stories
 
who could cross
a shimmering bed of dry leaves
without a sound,
 
you come
to a place
whose only task
 
is to trouble you
with tiny
but frightening requests
 
conceived out of nowhere
but in this place
beginning to lead everywhere.
 
Requests to stop what
you are doing right now,
and
 
to stop what you
are becoming
while you do it,
 
questions
that can make
or unmake
a life,
 
questions
that have patiently
waited for you,
 
questions
that have no right
to go away.
