the knowable

every time

I try

to grasp something

that is knowable

it rises up

like a very great wave

ascending 

with the strength 

of some almighty

bone-breaking

confession; 

but the moment

I think

I have the answer

to the question

it strikes me down

and says

‘let that be your lesson’
