Critic Fear or Abandon

On what path does the middle
Way walk, beside the ocean or 
Into the tide, pooling a base instinct
For avoidance of shame by either
Evasion or aggression
And, as we talked about,
These dualistic impulses
Wreak tragedy on the hearts
Of the split-down-the-corner
Watchers, listeners, sometimes-doers
Carrying selves whose unclear creatures
Want a safe place to sleep
And a field in which to play
