sweet anxiety

it is a preventative method,
the fact that I am not goal oriented

it sort of keeps me from going
too high, or too low, or too off

from the course my life’s current begs;
reality is then a little more approachable

all and all, that way curiosity can keep
indulging its divergent paths and handing

to us all the surprises we imagine this life
might have in its facets of dark matter

and regarding the faces of our many human moods,
I wonder what a quarrel with you will be like

I almost look forward to it, like some kind of
rite of passage, like, we really are something
