a cleft in time



long enough to look the past square in the eyes

and beg its forgiveness


long enough to glimpse the future

and make a deal

about the hard ground


directions to

 a crevice of now

a place to nestle and count

while the winds change


shake  lichens from the rocks

sending them twisting downward

to rest on wavy limbs below

in a green sway dream

not so far under

this immediate cleft
