Destiny’s Physics

Wild Poetry Forum
Honorable Mention, November 2013
Judged by Kelly Cherry


Balance will insist upon itself –
ruthlessly it varies to produce
what will conduce to the dispersal
of exactly equal weight. What had

once come early now comes late.
What was once revealed will now
be hidden. It doesn’t seem to matter
who is riding, who is ridden.
