Movement Comes Most Often
Movement comes most often without
Incremental thaws can peel a rock.
Years wash away the
While silence can the rustiest thought
There are magic whispers quietly in mourning
what we will never know as pain,
And songs that come upon us without
Undoing all the buttons that remain.
Our skin is quite a
Across which strangers freely come and
Subversive to our phantom sense of order
Yet never touching what
we think we know.
Thus without motion do we silent move
till suddenly we love.
