ROMANCE GONE
(5/31/17)

past
facts

current
circumstance

have reduced
life
to a simple
matter
of point A
to point B
logistics

all silvery
speech

golden
gestures

have lost
their value

they are
so much
pretense

unfortunately
they are
what most
want to hear

want to see

such
empty efforts
seem a waste
of time

a waste
of effort

there
are things
to do
today

and with
this practical
mindset

people
will stay
out of the way
to let them
happen
