So Many Saves


We celebrate
the whippoorwill
we saved in the garden
from the cat.
The cat we saved
from the tractor engine.
The tractor we saved
from a fire in the barn
the day we saved the cow
from the flu
brought in by a whippoorwill.
So many saves!
Save leads to save.
Life is salvation
following salvation.

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
