avoiding the negative way

what is no more has no more sway
unless we take the sullen way
that leads to labored bits of bile
and wastes the waning little while

regressing back to retread ground
instead of all the ways we found
to flee, escape, outgrow the pit
and not get stuck in all of it

and i should know, though may not yet,
the negative will not abet
for what is not has no more sway
and i had best
keep it
that way
