The fluidity of options flow
with change in circumstance
new experience disturbs
conceptual frameworks, twists
beams of balance, bends posts
of thought, only alluded dark
regions appear, taking one into
unknown territory, trees entwined
forests of glade then shade
to expansive seashore, drifting
sands, events moved by tides
sifted by waves, the surge of surf
leaving a vanishing sheen, context
on the seething shore, of argument
then flooding, in answer, caves carved
as the moon’s phase turns, questioning
the modality of day’s choice of chores.
