A phrase which suggests to me an outcome,
Born of reason; not the season for legal treatise but could
Call time on each resting pair of marching boots plus owner,
Dulled, still, at dawn following deadly all day military drill, the
Excess dust now gone and marcher done – he forever
Full of phrases, though no And Because, each one more
Grouchy, generally, than the one before.
High in the morning sky, higher still above the
Impermanent streaks of gold and pink I often think and write about,
Jumbos lumber, like this piece, from A to B (and beyond), yet
Kangaroo-like in offering limitless, on-demand hops and skips plus
Light snacks and beverages as each in-between moment passes;
More limitless even, for full-blown meals on wheels; never falling short,
Never running empty – though rarely creating a clear And Because.
Others assure me that it’s good, openly and boldly, to
Procrastinate – one of the best ways to make an And Because.
Questions do arise in my mind whether such behaviour can
Readily be described as reasoning followed by a resultant outcome.
So I tend to fend off such claims unless (like mine) they start as studied
Thought (reasoning) followed by a sudden lurch (outcome) designed to
Underline the link between our sedentary and active states.
Verse is, to my mind, still the go-to medium of today
When we seek to reveal subliminal connections, whispered causes and effects:
Xenophobia, for example might, in a poem, spawn uniformed militia forces.
Yet the only link today, for now, is between the start of each line to the next – so
Zero marks if you first found it down here, where there’s no outcome, no way forward.
