Repainting the Scenic Overlook at Failure Cascades

It’s similar to stillness
The way beings and cities
Run their cycles, but recall

The wisdom of Siddhartha:
“Feats of resilience”
Will surrender “to the fact
Of fragility.”

We should celebrate
Our resilience we ignore
At our peril, as it’s true:

Is an invented, nobler
Word for maintenance,
And life, friends, is maintenance.
