I have reached a place in life
Where I now experience the
Beginnings of the great paradox
Of the collision of the unstoppable
Force and the immovable object.
Nothing so grandiose or auspicious
As time marching across my face –
Much more disturbing and frightening
Is this spark between hammer and anvil
That result in the violent explosions of the
Force that is my pre-teen daughter meeting
Head-on the immovable object of my wife.
