Adam Whitworth


Fool’s Ghazal

Ascents most extreme scaled only by fools
he returns; he returns not; O the fools

The finest, most elevated branches!
There perch incessant songsters! And the fools

In this limited form they face the void
their eyes closed the better to see, the fools

Prepared to take flight? Then loosen your grip
encircle the rock with this flock of fools

The saints, who fly, and the sinners, who fall
unmasked yet undecided who the fools
