Circling Empty Wells

sifting through ignored piles of the semester


another “reject” as it were from the collaborative work with  Quirk’n It

we call it “circling the well”

this devoted dance

in which all paths

point to the gap.


we want to be loved

for who we “are”

some true self




in the midst of

the rest of us

is “all.”


we touch the tiles

and read them

when we can

mapping our approach


to the heart.

The urn is empty –

perhaps the strongest clue

that our dancing fills it.
