a trick to

©2022 Michael Raven

there is a trick to it...

a twist of place--
strings binding &
coiling, turning &
bending until all
outside in or
dexter warps sinister like
shadow bending light

intuit intuit
toss the compass afield
needles     are    use l e s s
my friend

for, you see
we are also the trees
entangled, rooted
jailed in time...
and we were meant
to be sentinels standing

there is a trick to it...
