wise heads

wise heads suggest
balance, maturity,

forgiveness where
i find betrayal.

maybe violence
will make me whole.

silly since cracked
limbs barely

carry me along,
vision failing

hearing less, less,
flab where muscle was

heartbroken yet, 
ignoring wise heads

old friends, barely
wondering, walk away

transit of venus

old old friend
with plush equipage

scales heights to
view the rarest

cosmic event
a black dot

snailing across
the white-hot disc

used in olden time
to triangulate

the parallax of
the human heart
