new year


abiding dank in the squatter’s darkness

now is not always the best time for words

and which words might do and who will hear them

and what of their abject inconsequence

all that’s to be considered before words

before a word before some foundling note

is seized and carried to an altar now

before hoopla before hope before the

new year that is now and again and when

now is not always the best time for words
