The she inside this skin

The she inside this skin.

Looking out my eyes

peering at the world

with calm regard

and firm resolve

always to do it better

than the last attempt she made.

She will examine.

she will question.

she will not sit still

and let life come to her.

she will make life come.

she will do the work

prepare the way

set a soft place exactly

where she knows the thing will fall

she will know

because she will spend the time

measuring and researching

until the intuition takes hold.

she is not often wrong

though you may attempt

to use your words

to deflect

to confuse

to stubbornly insist

in the end

she will do

as she will do

and to your surprise

somehow she will be correct

though you were quite certain

she couldn’t possibly find a way

she will not say a word

she will not explain

that while you were busy talking

she was busy planning.

She knows more then you think.

She is a goat

who makes her nimble way

with head down

and feet planted

in the end

you either see the truth of her

or walk away

shaking your head
