i watch
a child racing his bike uphill
chasing a purple sunset
mercifully he will never catch it
unless i'm wrong of course
and he realizes meaning
and he comes to understandings
all on his own, before he is prepared to
bear witness toΒ Β his own sadness
his place in the world
awakening too quickly, too young
to the ineffable journey
before him

its already begun
