a path forks--

and now I'm in a quandry--

I know all roads lead home
but spare me the smug piety--

it's the talking that path
that kills us slowly--gives warning

in a language we can never
begin to understand

attending our deluded notions
of manipulating our fates--

learn it--grace does NOT suspend karma
unless karma has BEEN suspended--

you wait for it to take care of your business
and you're finished--

a path splits and either way I go

I'll still have to contend with what I've done

and where I'll wind up next-whatever way opens
and whatever the One allows--
