How would we know good, if there’s no bad?


His soft words hit me like a velvet hammer.

It was an instant enlightenment.


Unless after the years of silent brewing

it became dormant

like blood running warm under a skin


And then it gushed forth

as the words have touched the raw flesh

after the fingernails were bitten to the quick


According to him Bad is

the flip side of Good


As in Yin and Young


But then I couldn’t help hearing


in my middle ear



as a genuine tendency

to do good to others


No matter what
