the knocks

 

i see those
puppy-lovers of the
great
once-upon-a-time

i see the when of
circumstance in
a calendar year round

that’s true to
the lips of fact

that’s true to
the rain and
flood

that’s true when
the mind is
a disorientation
to the world

that’s true when
all things are
quiet but
we hear
the knocks
