Certainty is a passenger,
on the load bearing threads;
such a ready thing, running back
and forth, similar to opposite,
fixed like so many desires
on an inward frame.

Back there in the darkness
partly converted to sound.
At the edge of memory,
reactions where we fall
apart are simple
as long as there is no bounce.
