Controlled Freedom

Poem by Pat Richards

Evenly even is our evenness
Not stretched, not taut
No spiraled tangleness but
Footed and webbed
Rock solid
Cemented solid

Reaching the heights
Expectations firm
Not anxious, not fraught
fixed on substance
Surging reality
Quality insistence

Anchored, attached yet
Thrillingly free
Privileged exhilaration
Spontaneous, burning
Dizzying evenly
Even in our evenness
