    The earth has leveled

    the dimples of the earth

    and its furrows

    and all its painful trenches

    now even.




    What joy?

    what consolation?

    Can a sweet sharp spike of

    the ego offer now?

    Nothing but second-hand trophies

    and circular success.




    The mirrored regard is now stern

    and unflinchingly I tweeze

    every shred of introspection

    that has hidden in the sweat of

    my very pores.

    A thorough cleaning.


    Mother has, after all,

    Spread her arms around me

    and the roughness of the carpet

    is nothing because

    I am encircled, stifled, and cotton-wool

    candied, again.
