Write the hard thing

Write the hard thing
make right the hard thing

the hard thing is that I have not yet done what I was here to do
or have i and it was really not all that?
that I’ll never do the things, that my envisioning
fissions into could dos and would dos
want to want to dos and can’t make myself dos
should dos and undos and redos

looking for the safe place
full of love and warmth and you can do it I’ll be right here
right, here.

Landing on coltish legs
my life new again and again
declare victory and done
or knuckle down
or run
back to hide inside
right here
