Not Everyone


who follows becomes a follower

with time some spheres become hollower than they had set out to be

some pariahs come nearer become dearer than they were meant to be

not everyone who swallows what the world unfurls becomes a saint

the lips have their own mind they pick their own tune looping it into the one refrain they love slipping into

again and again: thereis thereisn’t thereis neithersin­nernorsain­t
