At last, I understand
How poems are unlike actions

— The one who argues
Writing is not an inaction

Despite this being
Itself an action —

A gesture
Is pure

No time to channel
The head’s weather or

Movements of the heart
It is without motive

A parent’s

My teacher’s

Are innocent and yet
Such things change lives


  1. Gestures are pure 🙂
