For Idleness


In darkness I woke

but rose long after the sun

Wanting to do nothing

I got nothing done.



Feast


The butterfly

that was bigger than the bird

was not stronger.



Ancestors

The limits of words

are stories of men

whose lives are written

with a borrowed pen.



Exes

Two leaves detached

from the same branch

never fall

in unison.
