Why Doesn’t He Finish 2012

Why Doesn’t He Finish?


Clever, talented, inventive:

Why doesn’t he finish?

Builds, designs, creates until

The final stage.  Steps left

Unpainted, ceiling too;

Lights unconnected so the view

Is partial.  Guests don’t notice.

Nor does he.  He does, but has excuse

After excuse, and if

One should suggest, albeit grace-


One is a witch who does not highly

Value what’s been done.

All that one

Can do right after is to write

And thus complete

The corpus, its collections,

This one call Relationships:

Love’s Interactions.



One’s washed the kitchen floor –

Something accused and used

As counter-claim.


One’s glum,

Which is unusual

For one.
