Life Choices

 Account for the hairs on a sow’s ear
 with soft fingertips
 gingerly;
 these are our days
 one textured hair at a time,
 patternless
 and yet arranged;
 adept as flowers
 on a bush.  
 I watch my map
 spool out
 in retrospect -
 a pretty kaleidoscope
 of many-coloured dust -
a child 
with a box of chalk.
