By Matt Robert


wisdom isn’t safe or gentle

it’s striated and expansive

like cricket wings

or nebulae

or spandex


it pounds on the door

where others are asleep

or unborn

and radiates awareness


it tickles life

with the tiny hairs

of a chromosome

then recedes



wisdom isn’t having a moment

or pedestrian dressage

it’s knowledge

with scars
