chance


Corkscrewing in rhythmic waltz time
Or goggle-mach speed spearing white clouds
In lofty and gracious Amelia flight

Take the flip-coin chances of dank miners
Or saltatory fish gasping for air
Abandon safe poet chairs behind closed curtains

Swim offshore amongst the lithesome whale
Listen closely, gather their forsaken tales
Stroking away your own scorned love
