Coil


You think that you are coiling the thick rope,
but the rope is what guides your looping,
for notice when you turn it wrong
that there is nothing you can do
but surrender;
rope will always yearn to be twisted
in the manner in which it was first twisted.
You can’t fight against something
that can’t be taught anything new.
Coil the rope in the way
it must be coiled.
Teach yourself
how to bend heedless with the wind.
