i crave and loathe authority

don’t tell me what to do!
in anger, bitter resentment.
but, what do i do?  tell me!
in desperate, lost bewilderment

the mason hands me the hammer
with it i knock off the rough corners
the parts that won’t fit where i want to be
and a rule to live by, spend enough time on this
leave some time for the other things

relax the unrelaxable stone
surrender to the gift, get the gist
burn the mist, let go of miffed
make the now my home
