this impossible edge

30 Oct

we all worry about this impossible edge

where all things end and then and then?

we all know we are all about to cross that edge

and we scream and holler about

pushing it out, smoothing it out

give us a little more time and

we will manage to work it all out

but this edge is impossible

for there are no edges in life

everything blends together sloppily

like a child’s painting

our fierce desire for order

creates lines where there are none

control of a any kind is a dictator’s dream

instead we wax and we wane

and somehow

we make it through

as though it were a miracle
