Never Certain – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon


” A torpedo is adrift unless it has someplace to go.” Tim Allen

Never Certain

Do we ever make the grade,
or are we held in second place
by strategic torpedoes of meaning
moving in our direction,
always waiting for the strike,
never certain of understanding,
cowering while waiting 
for something to connect,
to make sense,
feeling confused
to the point that impact
comes as relief.
