to go over and back again,

to go over and back again,
up then down again—grave
is the matter of an unfit slave;
there is bravery in good slavery,
concomitance, unwaveringly
facing the waves of gain:

to argue is to love; one’s self
is one’s greatest argument—
o to reach agreement when
we fought ever-together, then,
for truth, honest couplement:
close enough is enough, for life.
