They’ve presented themselves again.
They keeping popping up again
creeping around corners
masquerading as madness that I must
–inhale and exhale–
until I can find their worth.
The birth of their wealth
will not be understood
until they are gone
and do not return.
But I’ll never quite know if I am free of them
or if they are on their way back to me.
(Which will keep my mastery humbled
and always in check with them.)
And if for a moment I forget a part of what I’ve learned in them
–they will find me–
and show me what I’ve forgotten.
These two must be in cahoots with each other because they keep showing up for me, together or very close to one another:
