Rite Of Change


the life that never went away
remains in silent piles of clothes
that stay awaiting gentle hands
to put them where they’re meant to be;
I see a patent rite of change
and patiently do best I can
to balance themes

I never add an item shed
in sensing chance that constancy
will play a role; I understand
that keeping peace is goal and game
and match triumphant in this frame
of referenced complacency
