Fire had its moments

Posted to Poetry

Gone are the days when I
laugh in tired revulsion.

Gone are the days when I
drag up spare emotion.

It's all had its moments, no use in revision,
we spin, scribe and forward mail in prisms.

The theories are dead in the water,
no stage drama, no tv special

was made about our lives.
We can have note-book melodramas,

as seen in this soon-to-be-buried post.
No matter, I have no self respect

to speak of or to toast.
