  • What if you leave and never return, / and worse, what if you return and never leave. / I fear being alone, but what if I tell you that / even more I fear never being alone.

  • I am a full-time fraud, / passing as a poet. / It's filthy work. But, / someone has to do it.

  • Tomorrow is as fragile / as a sheer curtain pulled tight. / Any old dog / who comes along / can put his paw / through it.
