On Happier Lawns, IV
The bizarre sound of my own
name repeating and people
My hair getting
unwieldy in a world filled
with an abundance that approaches
and beauty Truth
is a melody like a leach
or the aftermath of the disaster
there is no trace of A killer
When you open your eyes
someone familiar may be waiting
