It’s the agreement that you notice – not its terms:the bond in the entente – inordinate accord –
the public fascination taken in each other: the comfort
it affords: how it assimilates the dissonance:
faint tremors of the imminence of inharmonic chords:
cracked and nearly silent – sibilant – determinedly
unacknowledged. Tidal flows of generous intention
lend them tolerable strategy – tending to their
adequacy, not their doubt. They work it out.
