Simmer down the intermittent pen
the intermittent everything
this lack of discipline
is too exhausting.

You’re such a star
such a pretty light.

Always on
always off.

Pulsing as if you one day
just might expand
into soaring flight.

But no – not quite.

Like a wave
a daughter of the restless

shallow – translucent
deep – dark
going forward
and then back.

Like clock

But never still.
