failure to explain

words are prettier than
to move beyond love
but a good place to start

needed help ----- running off
--------- like lost children
-------------------------way down
we wanted connection in the soul

that sort of thing
------- invented
----------- in books by dead guys
and that guy with the guitar

but we settled for
------- baptism in
----------- the parking lot

------- placed together
where all might be
shaped by perception
------------- and failure to explain

sometimes it is hard to stumble
----- into the darkness
------- that sort of thing more
dreaded than encouraged

but the extent
------ known from the beginning
shouldn’t control discovery
