prescription for a happy life


by Kevin Kreiger

though you have no doubt sensed
that he is not one to posture

start with what
you cannot really see

the way sunset over the coast
sections the sky

the way day
slides softly out of reach

the way night
seems so beyond

try to hold what will slip
like easy rain from your grasp

know yourself
in the torrent of dissolution

make your stand
where the questions are densest

the real magic he is told
always happens in the transitions
