Even a Man’s Mind

Even a man’s mind
may be put at ease
as long as, as long as
the birds are singing
morning and evening
as long as, as long as
the sun remains.

Even a whirlwind will
find itself still
settled down in the middle
of the gale before
the waves hit the shore
settled down in the middle
of the unexplained.

Against predictions we cheat
fate in spite of afflictions
as long as contradictions conspire
we settle down in some sort of middle
where confusion kisses desire.

Even marriage might
last through the night
in spite of, in spite of
the tugging at the covers
the slamming of the doors
in spite of strain we are
right as rain.

Against predictions we cheat
fate in spite of afflictions
as long as contradictions conspire
we settle down in some sort of middle
where confusion kisses desire.
