Sine of Life - A Poem (From "Four Folded Corners")

Life is a sine curve --
slide and climb,
never constant
never satisfied
never fulfilled
always leading
to a "turn"
that makes you
feel something,
life breathing soft
upon your pores,
fingertips to lips,
prompting sensation
elation --
intoxication
is the end
only to want
to start again
fall over the
edge and die
waiting for
the next tide.

By Mary E. Lohan
