do not reap to the very edges
of your field
or gather the gleanings
of your harvest
. . .
is an action
the words you use

… how often?
. the choice to want and grasp is ours .
but remember that often
it is simpler + easier
to let go
and swing in the pendulum
teach us to number our days aright,
that we may gain a heart
when not sure how to say something,
what would / do you do?

not say anything at all?
know everything in this moment
and you will know the
