Spaghetti knots

beat

beat the lazy sun

that climbs later each day

and will stumble over a hill

drunk from the night before

with a vomit of yellow

pouring to those who will see

and only you will

for the sun rises

first on its knees

then hands

then feet

to you

who is working

doing

giving the sun a purpose

besides allowing it

to languish in darkness

for half a day

 

beat the total night

that circles like a child’s game

arm in arm

leg in leg

tied over you to make you

close your eyes

in pain and relaxation both

but you don’t

for you are okay with a little more pain

and a lot less relaxation

 

beat it all

with all of it

all you got

and all you don’t

showing it

that there are things you

aren’t good at yet

haven’t learned

maybe never will

but you’ll cobble your teeth together

tear your lips

consume your mouth if you have to

only if that means

you keep keeping

and can see what it is like

to win

then

still have more opponents

for there will always be more opponents

and always more you

who has beat it all

but can never be beat
