“Life is not susceptible perhaps to the treatment we give it when we try to tell it.”

“the visible is perhaps only an invisible anxious to be known”
“arrange whatever pieces come your way”
“what rich moment will you find, ever,
that isn’t cheapened by your reaching for it?”
Even though we made it up in the first place – visible, invisible.
It came in pieces.
We reached for it/them
to puzzle them together.
Some pieces fit, some don’t
We decide what to make of them
Who “we” is, for example.
Once it/they come (whatever I/you decide it/they is/are)
It/they cannot be discarded or undone
Only selected or refused.
Reality isn’t matter. Doesn’t.
And it does.
To a certain extent
“we” call “invisible.”
Here’s a piece: “peace”
Or “god,” “love,” “me,” “you”
“self,” “cat” or “unicorn”
“Here’s” “a” “piece.”
What do you make of it?
In other words –
what do you see?
is it visible or invisible
when you reach?
“Or” – an enormous piece
I threw in there.

and error in poetry is necessary for poetry”
