    Your money's your own
    prison when you can't see past
    the cell of comfort.

    The cell of comfort
    permeable and porous
    clearly, not for us

    Clearly not for us
    those days of eternal wealth;
    the well has run dry

    The well has run dry --
    imagination sand, grit
    dirt in a dry mouth.

    Dirt in a dry mouth
    a forlorn child at the spout
    of a rusted tap

    Of a rusted tap--
    yet how sweet the maple sap
    filling my bucket.

    Filling my bucket
    with blackberries, if lucky,
    takes me quite a while.

    Queue up at the old turnstyles,
    Haunted by late trains.

    Haunted by late trains,
    ears, heart, unblinkable eyes
    gather more shadows.

    and hold them over my head.
    My skin is burning.

    Dolls for the real world
    deflate in the Ford's back seat--
    a painful goodbye.

    A painful goodbye—
    Not waiting for the first frost
    taunting geese take wing

    Taunting geese take wing
    honking oil-slick memories
    and the human stain.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to start a Springfield thread.

    Because he chose to
    hide his face from the masses,
    his alibi's gone.

    Those who could help him are dead.
    And soon he'll be too.

    whereas she once was almost;

    They could never at
    once listen and choose to hear
    indelicate words.

    Indelicate words
    thrust their bows through the rough sea
    onto smaller boats.
