Becoming

becoming

A bigger dilemma than a few words
misconstrued, this is a failure of the
‘us’ we will have to rely upon to see
us through troubled times

Maybe there isn’t room enough yet to
spare manoeuvring around the edges
of imagined barricades, a grand power
placing them exudes its own mystery 

We see a nimble edge of an impasse –
there is no denying the precision with
which it interpolates between emotional
boundaries yet to be surely defined

That is not the pickle any more than
awareness does not cheapen you or
your need for surety, it is just we have
yet to define where ‘we’ becomes ‘us’
