too much imagined in a smile, or not

that is the question.

youth, age, weave with guilt and fading hope

smiles and glances, wondering at wondering.

language will fix it, and it will

No matter that I can help others, many others.

Think of the harm principle.

And fuck you.

 

It will probably not come to that anyway,

and life will go drearily on.
