The Hammered One(Poem)

1000 strikes
to settle in stillness.
1000 portraits
to share death and dust.
1000 pounds
to hold the chances.
1000 cuts
for the strength.
1000 joys
to appreciate intimacy.
1000 separations
to unite again.
1000 roads
to confront the inevitable.
1000 directions of defiance.
1000 ways to bleed.
1000 routes to rust.
1000 paths to pit.
1 way to survive.
1 way to stay.
1 way to stand.
Search for the one.

—Drunken Nail.
