Milton VT August 3, 2016

I prefer to take my lessons the hard way
that feeling of dead deep bone tired
when I realize that life is compelling me
to enter places I would not normally
want to go

my name will never reach the vocabulary
granite will one day be washed away to sand
the voices of all beings amount to nothing

we are content and bewildered evenly
what is good in you is good in me
smallness in the midst of a largeness
that cannot be overcome
but in dreams
