The Ones We Take

they were taken as pins from a cushion
they were
and so they were taken
as they were
as pins from a door hinge
as hinged from a pin
they were taken as they were seen
so, fundamentally, they were not the usual ones we take
remember, they are not always seen as they are here (with us)
so, sometimes, when they were taken, what I got was very much not what you
thought you had given

they have those one things, those things you stick your hand in to push the pins out the
other side and make a hand imprint over there
this is kind of how I have taken them,
that is kind of not how you had given them

we are resigned to this process
well, I am designed to this process
and since we always multiply downward
you are resigned

I leave the possibility of inverse commonality
my down may be your up
I may have left you up
