fertilizing, cultivating indifference;
feast and famine interlace,
an exercise in exorcising harmful breaches of nature,
futile for some, fruitful for others.
we learn to swim up stream
in the river between us and our desire.
we must study each detail in the vast meadow that lies
between want and need
where the love of yesterday and indifference of today coexist
without inducing notions of ugliness or failure
thoughts just swish there in gentle winds
sweeping across fields
like wheat heavy with grain
in the heat of summer they bow their heads
while everything around dries, evaporates.
