Do the Right Thing

Poesy plus Polemics

choi “Choices” by Luz Harpley

devil or angel
each voice in my ear
how to judge
unaccustomed advice

both messengers
carry a deity’s
answer to prayer
one has virtue
the other pretends
one is blessed
the other condemned

fingers crossed
have no power
the coin toss
no true guarantee

all I know to be
mortally certain
is I must take
action immediately
in the now of the end
I’ve no choice but
to follow my heart

as I’ve done
through my life
with no voice in my ear
save the human ones
memories spoken
by actions of those
whom I’ve loved

(From my book Ephemera)
