no trespassing sign
The Implications 
Byron Hoot

Among what trees of life and knowledge
do I meander having  No Trespassing 
signs nailed to  them, the invitation to take
as much as I can, memorize the trail
into and out of the paradise of denial
so I can endlessly return, get what I need,
leave more for later.  To say, "Do Not" 
is an RSVP for "Go Ahead."
I'm finding more of those trees
everywhere; I don't have to remember
where I've been, I only have to look
and see, know nothing is without 
consequence -- nuanced or nuclear --
and be ready to say with Job and Jesus,
"I've done nothing which is not of me."
