Three Things

 

Three things

Are not four things.

Three things

Are sharper than knives,

Silent famines of thought that

Shine silver like moons in the dark.

 

Three things are perfectly cold

By intent

By design

By the deadliest scheme.

 

Three things are ancient wheels

That turn in the night,

Near misses and reflections.

 

Three things

Are stitching thought to flesh to deed,

Bone drawing blood slickened sinew.

 

Three things are problematic monsters

Ministering, waiting, and watching.
