  • A voice I know well
    admits the lack of maps
    & uncertainty beyond
    surrender to instincts

    Colon half-lost on Santa Maria
    knew intuitive reasons
    don’t explain very well
    to financiers & kings

    Like Polos on the Silk Route
    half-truths & word of mouth
    shape a far-away Khan

    A voice I intuit well
    suggests that thirst
    must be sated
    or die

    Like breathing
    we take-in what’s out there
    fill our minds, filter

    As a child, the same strong bidding
    for loitering in magical strongholds
    watching the very wonder
    watchers love to

    interactive particle
    morphing the substance
    etching a sideline
    water & shore
