how to mend a fence

Leave a comment

it all depends
the farmer said
on how high the fence
and wide the gap
how tall is just enough
to push thoughts out
or hold emotions in
and had I
thought of life
enriched by feelings?
is the gap a full on
crop of breaks
or something less
some oddly chronic
stutter of connection,
fluorescence hindered by
its oozing ballast
can we glue chain split apart
or pickets freed by
loose, bent nails
it all depends
the farmer said
on how we view
the things
that we might do
for love
