c.a.n

Captured by a glance
Caught by the second hand
Crafted by a sashaying wand
Comforted by an infant rhythm

Able-bodied and crippled mind
Ailed and forever indebted
Astounded and overwhelmed
All-rounded and symbolic

Naught but the crisply dissipating desire
Named but not entirely legitimate
Nurturing but the motive’s questionable
Nihilist but optimistic till death
