This way where
           the interrogatives
this way how
           this way when
the investigative life
           the unsettled mind
that questions all things
           the whys and the wherefores
the mysteries with which
           our lives are riddled

How could she
           why did she
why won’t she
           what will she
what does she
           when was it
and how
           and who

O for the natural
           affirmative life of nature
pushing forward
hesitations unknown
           each action decisive
and definitive
           no doubt
no deception
           no tears at bedtime

John Lyons
