Furthest Noose


“Don’t ask me, I’m just a stenographer.” —Roshi Bob

what if the horizon is the yes that rings us round
but is impossible to reach

what if making way toward it is futile but
we can’t help ourselves, being seasick of  yes

what if no is its center, as in hub, and dizziness
or fierce turbulence throws us off

what if we’re distracted by comfort or battered
by what the Greeks called Poseidon

what if Poseidon is myth and the sea is real
or  visa versa

………………………. and the sea god calls
……………………………………………………………….. Yes! Yes!
………………………………..here I am
………….come

……………………horizon. the furthest noose

and our answer is
…………………………………..denial
