Go or Stay or Go Astray
for M.L.R.

what will you have me do or be
oh Lord, oh Saviour

will you have me go or stay

what way will you have me turn
towards or away from this woman

with her opposite sides
with her inside out
with her back to front to face

from day to day, from time to time

my own flip-flopping
like a fish on a deck

like a fisherman with a club

for a fish on deck, pitching, wishing
it were back in the sea,
swimming away
