here first. until we are there.

I don’t know anything

for sure unless I look it up,
but sometimes I can figure
things out if I write them 
down. So it’s up and down
all day long. It’s a good life.
Better than back and forth
or in and out which I find
constraining. I have up
and down in balance and
with my mother’s death
have discovered the true
meaning of before and after.
