The Untenable



Perfection of form,
at least according to plan,
supersedes any whim.
Locked in the untenable
I can pine or remember
(also a pining
but one I own),
I can dread and delay,
or just wait listening to the birds
commiserating in song.
Demons are rationalizations,
devils are oversimplifications.
Everything available
is wrong.
