Nowhere Fast

               1.

Give me your secret.
I can keep it.
I’ll become it.

               2.

The way ski racers
Lining up
Become the race:

               3.

Look what was put
Into the pot
And what came out!

               4.

The way each choice
That made itself
Make us unmade us;

               5.

Hid us, betrayed us.
O my compass
Your wilderness

               6.

Awaits reply:
Say you and I
Will find our way

               7.

Eventually—
Like see and saw,
Or sea and sky.
