If Only All We Need Were

How woefully wrong
every single thing is now
with Brat Boys of America
running all the shows

It’s amazing how quickly
respect turns to regret
in higher-circus atmosphere

We are endlessly capable
of scudding what’s right for us

But for love’s indefatigability

  1. But for love’s indefatigability

    It was most regrettable but unfortunately it is now all history. One would just have to stomach it for the next few years!

  2. love’s indefatigability

    This is what we cling to, even when it seems that love itself will fail. Thank you for another year of wisdom in poetry, Marian. I am so fortunate to be able to call you sister poet.
