more turtles and hares

30 Jun

i admired the ones not afraid
to stare off into space towards
somewhere no one ever knew,
not even them.
it added to the celebration of mystery,
but ask them about shoelaces
and the answers were straight and real.
they let the mystery be the mystery
and the i just be another i,
scribbling odes to pigeons
as just another way to
quiet the mind,
an exit sign.

*for more on endless approaches
broken bats baseball
curve, slide, knuckle, and ?
