Was There Ever

question – is being inspired
going to end up being more
or less like you or being
more like or less like
your inspirer?

variation – between one evening
and the next is that a day
or does the day begin
and end as you wake up
to tomorrow?

answer – the son denied
what the father came to embrace
until the repetition of it
like a mantra revealed what
must persist.

variation – where does the high
in a high pressure system flow
but over the bar into the low
so was there ever a night without
rain somewhere?
