Forever Tending

forever

tending to details

fleeing failure

a narrow escape

and gifts.


foolish

to gamble a life

time up in smoke

the lost campfire

sifting ashes.


charcoal

is good for teeth

be sure to floss

avoid holes and

fluoride objections.


careful

where you wander

there is danger

even as all roads lead

to that same place.
