My Vector

If the breeze vector
takes me here
where I am
I am here
where I am
wound up
and delivered
by gusts of passion

For I am ignorant of the fashion
that shakes hands
to establish the ways and means
we coalesce
more or less
I think it's a waste of time
to shake hands
but throw me an orb direct
that I might absorb and connect
my vector to the passion.
