Words and exercise thrive in
shade. Too much sun
scorches them. I write like
a mushroom under a house. I run like
a mafia meeting. The secret is
to know your secrets and the place of your secrets,
to water enough but not too much
and pray over them with cinnamon
or a gun.
The secret is: Worry enough. Wait your turn.
Hold your tongue.
