young once

young once, steel your pale complexion

dream the fraudulent mind leaves

all imagined without radius or glow

simple talk, delicately quiet gestures

yes, indicating a future violent

certain and yours

forget convenience

such red words

would clothe our haste

cleanse anyone of their

birthright driven indifference

as in who cares finally


how they care

is singular
