Night Moth


You make your way in bursts of frenetic activity,
     Weaving dizzily from target to target.

No one took you out on the water
     And turned the tiller over to you,
With instructions to focus on a distant point
     To keep your course correct.

But I assume you have a destination in mind;
     Perhaps you don't—no matter.
You're bound to reach a place of rest eventually,
     With your exploratory methods.
