The Loop Sublime

Humans know that what goes around
comes back around
always, forever, and ever.
this is no circular theory
in need of complex proof
it's a fiery piece of straight and forward truth

so what I get
I must have given
which makes me want
to feel forgiven
even if I transgress more

I'll not be sure
if it's the finish of a loop
I may have started
but from which
I have now departed
unless, of course,
it's not at all a loop sublime
but just a straight and endless line

[1997]
