morning poem -



Inadvertently

 

five syllables that can only be said with attention

but the word means heedless, not attentive ——

And is water when liquid

paying more or less

attention than ice,

and when we speak

do we notice how and where our words

strike,

do they move like waterfalls

or get stuck like spikes.
