Optimum Distance

the mind is a rifle sighted at a certain range,
an unknown range,
where every shot is a bulls-eye
(barring wind,
or frost,
or the waver of a hand).
and still,
every day the fridge is full of empty,
every day the heart begs,
every day the wind howls and
we can only adjust the sight and
gently squeeze the trigger.
