(We are artisans in the trades of life.
We clasp double-braids to earn our meal.
We are partisans in the glades of strife.
We grasp double-blades when pocket’s nil.)
(sitting in my car
come and go –)
is going places;
walking or riding
(coming is leaving; leaving is coming.
between coming and leaving is staying.
between leaving and coming is going.
arrival is not departure; departure is not arrival.
between arrival and departure is dwell.
between departure and arrival is travel.)
a walk and a ride.
