Sense of permanence went West
not in an unseemly rush – more
like a slow leak of air

Goose bumps first, then stumbling,
an inchoate unevenness of
quaking gait

Refreshing fears almost forgotten
dressed long since as old
wounds of conscience

Ending sagacity – jurisprudence
of duality, paired commonness,
unravelling its logic
