“I will bury my wanton messages
so they reappear
when circumstances warrant”
That said
you may entertain in the room of the dead
with requisite cynicism
They’re done
with their profound thoughts
leading to nothing—more or less.
Your little quest
is a performance of form
to a doughboy’s disgust
One did not used to perform
One used to yell
Geronimo from a trestle
deaf to its obvious aptness
