  1. SELF-PITY by D.H. Lawrence

    I never saw a wild thing
    sorry for itself.
    A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
    without ever having felt sorry for itself.

  2. What to do?

    Past counter and
    out door,
    across parking lot
    and onto canvas,
    night promises scars.

    Yes sun set.
    Points darkened.
    I flirt with ignominy.
    Grease-dirty. Aware
    of tricksters.
