Weak Forces

I enjoy an accumulating

faith in weak forces –

a weak faith, of course,

easily shaken, but also

easily regained – in what

starts to drift: all the

slow untrainings of the mind,

the sift left of resolve

sustained too long, the

strange internal shift

by which there's no knowing

if this is the road taken

or untaken. There are soft

affinities, possibly electrical;

lint-like congeries; moonlit

hints; asymmetrical pink

glowy spots that are not

the defeat of something,

I don't think.
