are we not yet exhausted by the
pursuit of purity and perfection in the dirty house of love?

yes…but…and…also this…well, also that too

i understand. surrendering and giving ourselves so fully
are not conducive to this luxurious world of convenience.

Love and Choice, Love and Choice.
What an odd couple they are, wouldn’t you agree?

when we listen deeply, our ideals laid to rest,
we do not make commitments, they become us

and maybe, really, I am the idealist,
committed to wandering about the muck…
