02/11/2007 – untitled (for Sheifali) (c)

i think you already know the answer to this question
and you who need only know yourself
understand that it is not a matter of want
want, need, desire, aching, longing
longing for something
but a matter of knowing and having learned
learned, seen, smelled, tasted, sought, and found
found, you.
here in the midst of this quest of questions
quietly quizzing self and selves
but then, there at that moment
you already knew, didn’t you
knew yourself, your path, your journey
thus far preparing you for today
and tomorrow
and your choice
did you find yourself here on these distant shores
along strange streets, and mutilated magnolias
of such verdant earth as to be clean
clean for a seed
blown from a distant land of color,
color, sight, smells, tastes, textures,
to bloom here a worldly mix of all of these
ready to take on HER world
on her OWN terms
