The Luxury Of Hesitation [excerpt From The Proof From Motion] - Poem by Keith Waldrop

things
forgotten
I could
burn in hell forever

set the glass
down, our
emotion's moment
eyes vs sunlight

how removed
here, from
here
towards the unfamiliar and

frankincense forests
against the discerning light
everybody
sudden

frightful indeed, the sound of
traffic and
no appetite
the crowd

I would like to be
beautiful when
written
