one must decline the most honorable
and accept the most radical
and here/now i present these examples:
among stately towering family
–cousins, at least, if not siblings–
whose welcome/smile was
of course(emphatically confirmed by beetles/walkingkisses)
but to stay
would be to
face tall expectations,
like marrying into the Amish.
before fluttering alluring depth
and lovely drifting woodbodies,
that laughing clarity-blue
(to gaze is to commit)/and worth every shiver.
