overture and beginners

Even as we arrive:

I am going to look this way
I am going to speak this way
I am going to move this way

our careful control yields
to soft spilled edges
and a certain amount of infill

Still we attempt to direct the eye

try to hold them with meagre clues
let fall our characters our motivations
...our trail of breadcrumbs

In the middle of it all already
this is always how it begins
