saliers

I woke up with a headache
like my head against a board,
twice as cloudy as I’d been
the night before.

And I went in seeking clarity.

I go to the doctor,
we go to the mountains.
We look to the children,
we drink from the fountain.
We go to the Bible,
we go through the work out.
We read up on revival,
we stand up for the lookout.

There’s more than one answer to these questions
pointing me in a crooked line.
And the less I seek my source
for some definitive,
the closer I am to fine.

The closer I am to fine.
