Caitlin Scholl: Expectancy

=================================== Fall '11 TOC

A man sets out to live an examined life.
He says: “I am free of expectation.”
Therefore he is free.
I say: “Expectation is the mother of disappointment.”
To which he agrees.

The seed falls to the ground, where it
Expects the soil to be.
There is no sound,
When it splits,
It roars.
The moment of collision
The only echo of this ecstasy
Of repetition.
