Being Wrong


Poor title, prelilminary draft, but solid in conception:

Being Wrong

In my life
I've been wrong far more often
than I've every been right,
but at least I've committed.

There are some
who will take no position
unless it can be unequivocally established
that it is the right one:

like moths between
floodlights they waver from one
to the other, until exhausted
they make a dying fall between them.
