Impatience As a Virtue

The truest things are always
placed deep within the mind

often obscured by minutiae,
a coating that can be scraped away

It’s funny that purity
doesn’t exist unless
we force it to

A hawk rests on a streetlight,
then flashes its speckled feathers

At the base of a dam,
the water forces its way forward
