dirt on the welcome mat

not quite
in face or form,
but balance
he desired
in space,
letter or
speech, he
sculpted or
shaved, paved in
smooth sound
a walkway
ground so
endless, far
and fragile that
it caressed
silence it
is poetry

Split ends,


Bending into ragged

Piggyback rides,

Sliding in thin

Between the

Healthy strands

On all sides,

Refusing to break

But making

Cracks in

A confident head

All the same.
