what is born/torn of you tonight?

driven by artistic license

i promise

you

at first pass

i always

pull out

the wrong

handed glove.

careening through streets to keep a perfect rain drop splat journeying its way across the windshield the way “i” want it to… never mind watching the road or whichever errand i was to be moving towards…

i have never and will never earn this hearing, this tasting, this seeing, smelling

this sense of

touch

and i am ungrateful oftener than i care to remember to forget.

still trying to discover if something labeled a table is for kicking or for placing a cup of juice upon.

do we think tradition is a tradition despite our reinventing every time?

beneath every courage

is this delusional earthling believing they have artistic license to dance with free will.

what is born/torn of you tonight?
