Karen Neuberg

Attempts to be the cycle fail.
Attempts to be the storm fail.
Attempts to manage the amassed fail and topple instead.
Attempts to climb the topple fail.
Attempts to quiet the old song, the old saw, the unfettered fascination to succeed fail.

The failure attempts to be success. It succeeds.
Full of success, she know not how to be.
