Fascination Number Twelve - Poem by Shelby Barker
Motive is the former in "cause and effect": it is why,
and it is how,
Like gravity making our tides
and our rain,
Going just as unnoticed
but being entirely limitless in
population and consequence.
It seems one is made of what they cathect,
dependent on whom
Different in every scenario and
not always defined,
such as the imponderable
Reasons for hate and most other preferences.
an explanation for explanation we try to perfect,
With philosophical theories
and higher powers, coined with other terms
like "fate" and "habit."
Motive is never left
at just that.
