not knowing (3 Sept 2009)

9 Jan

it’s nice to know it doesn’t
matter, your decision
is only for the next phase
to begin, like a flag
drawn down the mast
silence replaces the
flapping wind

for a split second everything
dies in the exhale
pause in that long
gap
of not knowing

and then fly your flag
up against the sun
there’s no knowing if it
changed
anything at all
from what was choreographed
in the very beginning
