Discipleship


A cold cast of existence :  that moment
in art history when one art
breaks from another   and life
is forever seen otherwise

A few minutes past some country wall
the deepest green of needles
clunks to the weeds where my mother
wanders on perpetual loop

Idleness versus purpose
destiny versus flitteryness :  Isosceles
and not human at all   my mother
dabs and my mother daubs
Grass-green

yellow-green   green-black :  not even
two seconds to say farewell to her children
