Be Done With It

be done with it
the shape multiplicity takes
its variegated textures,
melding wood and metal
revealing itself
incidentally through
hue, shape and texture
until form and
the shape of content fail
often against their will

hand it back to them
partially assembled
tell them it’s over
for now
until order reveals itself
and you’re not stuck
with the same old solution
to an identical problem
repeating itself ad nauseam
migrating downward
as if repetition was needed
to make its point

in its place may come something
almost as relevant
for the time being
as it is now
while you wait
to see it unfold

just a bit longer now
and the sudden shift
of a subtle breeze
will reveal random coruscations
the mosaic light creates
passing between leaves
