Mistress

There is a place

beyond doubt

 

where meaning speaks so clear

that purpose is obvious

even as it makes no sense

 

artists splashing their detritus on walls

hailed as beauty or junk

- opinion

so secondary

to the primacy of the call

 

urgency

of the life force rising

 

the kunda demanding allegiance

from pen or clay or spices

 

a flow beyond reason

like a dance mistress

thumping her stick

on the floor,

terrible and true

in making movement.
