Dare to wriggle forward without
Your sensory appendages
Extended. Keep those eyes shut tight.
Don't stop. Don't hesitate. Don't slow.
You're in the cave of what happens.

Darkness and risk and chance all meet
In the bent etymology
Of a term for bold recklessness,
Reminding you that in your mind
Clairvoyance is just one more sense,

That the enculturated mind
Is a collective appendage
For assessing nearby hazards,
That the future is a message
Foolhardiness paints in the cave.
