this unfinished project buried
in the back of a drawer
a tangle of strings and knots and beads
what was I thinking
I still don't know how to finish it
and really no interest in
figuring out the puzzle
the corner I painted myself into
I wonder why I keep it along
with other things that once held meaning
invested with a fleck of me
I could tame it down under a plate of glass
within a frame of elegant design
a few threads escaping
Title it "Unfinished One" ....
it is what it is
The vision is for Ongoingness; Life continuing on . . . .
I am I and my circumstance; and, if I do not save it, I do not save myself.
—JOSÉ ORTEGA Y GASSET
Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be––this is the interrelated structure of reality.
—MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
