Taoist ideogram


There is a movement

that doesn’t move.


There is a wind

that is still.


There is black

that dresses in white.


There is a yes

that means no.

A stop sign

that says go.

An earth

that is a grain of sand.

A boy

that has always been a man.

A death

that always lives.

A thing outside us


that always gives.


What makes anything right?


I, I undying in this necessary fight

can do what I wish

in travail, in delight.
