On Those Who Borrow 2011


          On Those Who Borrow


Can you think through the chinks,

Through the links of the chains

When you borrow but know about

                             somewhere inside?

Paying back, want making want,

Wish and needs

Derived from imaginings,

Wanton deficiencies,

Lured by the promise

That lurks in a luscious and lustrous glow,

To lurch, lunge and go

Toward a cost

And a loss,

Well, of course you can –

                             somewhere inside.
