GRASP

Darker room from answers
to the wrong questions, detours
of imprecision, impatience lead
astray, follow cows searching grass
as night descends, to seal our lack
in phases of the moon, as sensitive
dependence looms, predictability
breaks down, to the merest chance
in a dark attic, bizarre limits attract
misunderstandings complement
static perturbates as interrogatives
multiply, leaving us to grasp
“confounding contraries” and ask.
