The Liability of Caverns

Incessant walks through these same holes

Contrary positions for taking control

the lesser dreams that create such, bespoke

and all that is flaccid, juice less, broke.

Communication it is not fair,

and talking about it I do not care

to be left alone to pick any scab

and in this our cave the emotions grab

Whatever wields this classic role

I do not care, when I’ve come to this old

these ways of working I’ve seen before

its the same as also, just that bit slower

Rich drips of experience, lists of youth

Timely coincidence and dark fits of truth

Never to last in emotion’s deep wallow

The hard filled clues find it difficult to swallow

To be this bitter is reasonably correct

when given to the joyless tastes we erect

We founder still at the first real chasm

As flung feelings clutch and the heart climbs spasm
