Re: XLII--14 an injured poem

love you and leave you, that's just the way these fickle poems are.

but you did very well with what she left behind.

without a poem
except for this
dropping of a rhyme
left in the corner.

CXXXIX,22. night creature

the expanding gloom
of a winter day’s ending
puts me to sleep
before
the sun has completed
its falling

a creature of night
creeping,
I am of a winter nocturne
born, the soft music
of soft shadows,
the soft comfort of
cold stars softly
gleaming
