The score folds
leaves to an even edge;

Aqueduct’s parking lot
is water, the treeline

a shore. Faith is humble
assumption & trust.
Trust is measure, distance,

extension, & collapse; that is, how

far is far away, how
close is close?

All clatter distracts, all
trappings distract,

all distractions
collapse, all contractions
collide, all diversions contract

& so collide.
