How does it begin.

How do you start over,

and remain true.

Taking in all that has so far accrued,

how do you build alongside it.

Is it possible,

to tell complacency to be damned.

Do countries

await our arrival.

How do you hold

an equation,

or nurse it

so that it trusts you.

Is it possible, on this stage.

Does the ladder disappear,

or the roof,

can it teach me to speak like a candle.

Like a ten dollar bill

in an old coat pocket.

Can we burn the vine

and keep the tender grapes,

come back from the damned

and remain true.

How will it begin

and what will it end.
