repeatedly we are asked
to embody or consume;
to be in kinship with everything larger
or to order and manage everything smaller.
we are asked, everyday, to align or separate;
to coordinate our will with everything living
or to impose our will on everything we meet.
and not choosing is a choice. acquiescence
is different from patience or surrender.
all this leaves us needing to know;
whether to better the song through practice
or to better ourselves through singing.

while i was contemplating the task of cleaning my windows...
i scored better than front row seating
to the most amazing battle.
i watched for a couple of rounds,
there were a whole lot of kicking and jabbing and
actual stinging-like-a-bee-ing !!!
....the spider won
...the whole wasp was devoured
...the window remains to be cleaned.
