imperfection is best

June 8, 2020

sometimes it’s all about tenuous links
because the psychic hug moments
are sweeter when fewer

and a glance here and there
can change an hour
or even a day

sometimes it’s all about
the waiting
because you never know what might happen
if you stop rushing and sit

and we find objects
and arrange them in thought
and construct the collages
that surround us

sometimes things fall apart
and sometimes they merge
and sometimes the fractures are permanent
and sometimes they bring something new

great thinkers
can be baffling
and a good biographical story
ought to be more poetic than factual
at least that’s my
imperfect experience

will we learn
once the rains have come
and gone
and the tourists return
to dirty their feet
with Cambodian dust?
