For Thalia, Melpomne & Calliope

Did I ever tell you –
       you are not
                   always meant
          to get it ?

                          One slaves
       long  into  the  night  sometimes
             to get it right
                so that it just might
                        get         you.

                  Often
            it is merely meant
                 to
         bring you
                      to your senses
                  [all six]

           The proper stance
       is not scrutiny
                        [ leave the glass
                 and deerstalker
              at 221 B ]

     Lay you down      in your mind
            as you would out at sea
                    or on a hill
           some still summer night –
         become the telescopic dish
                     that listens

                       Open –
          for anything but business.
