trout [ 6 ]
Zia Mandviwalla: [1 , 2 , 3]

Conception is always the hardest.
The lubricated arrival at the point of

No return, where the facile folds one
Into the other; synthesis; fluidly

Forming a singular drive to
Urgency; heated; harder; heavier than

Before, the helix turns
Circuitous, too complex, too much

To think about as you rise and
Fall and rise and fall again until

Finally it arrives; infinitesimal in
Enormity; drafty; only sketched, you will

Carry, develop, modify and
After hard labour, it will be.

If not it is lost to you,
and you, mislaid in it.
