The Nemesis

Grief comes with a full suitcase
of virtues
Ticketed circumstances that take
all their validation
from being in the eyes of others
Startled & dying
the truth of the opposition held
like a claw in the hand
the dressing of an episode in the creature
you think you are
The vagaries of time
put you on the trail of an upset
of an occasion of lust where you don’t totally
fall apart
Half a moon
gives you half as many spells
& the meanings you can’t get to don’t work/
