Contending for enlightenment

When resignation masquerades as enlightenment
and determinations rend from people positions,
mere roles, feeble arithmetic of automatic
failings (how exult to remind oneself,
as the trauma steals in, that after all
we are bodies and all else is narrative,
not that we need those) or successes,
new offspring and old clothing—
when the intelligent think all foregone
and the rest think all foreclosed—
what else—there outside, the sun—
