it will not be titled

September 24, 2012

it will not be insisted,

for insistence crushes it

 

it will not be tied, bound, chained,

for it flows free, effortlessly escaping

from all bonds

 

it will not be discovered from aggressive, impatient search,

as if looking for misplaced keys or wallet,

and it will not be uncovered

through complex description, detailed direction,

or ruthless discipline

 

if it ever comes, it comes softly, unannounced,  

and sits quietly waiting to be noticed

 

it will not appear in its coat of many colours

in the midst of argument or debate,

but it may unfurl, unexpected,

before ignorance and knowledge alike

 

it is not arrived at by greater efficiencies, or

improved concurrence,

by this season’s new colours, or

a redoubling of efforts to improve

 

it will not be locked in a cage,

bedecked with jewels,

delivered through multiple channels to market,

or sophisticated and differentiated cleaning products 

 

its song is almost silence,

a breath in an empty room,

a single warm note on a mountaintop

 

it has neither deadlines nor milestones,

it has no key performance indicators,

it has no feedback, no awards;

it is without ownership,

it mobilises no resources,

and knows no targets

it is without glory

 

it is in between the lines,

and where the dust settles,

it is in the gaps, like stray grass

it taps on the cold glass

 

it is hiding in plain sight

it belongs
