I must learn a new song...

for so long I followed Catullus and his

odi et amo

but now I've tended the common root

from which hate and love spring

now though nothing's changed

everything is still different

and my screech slowly refines itself

to a song of no winners or losers

but all who get exactly

for what they have readied themselves

weep and embrace? be joyful and embrace?

either way an embrace draws notes to the throat

and the sound is a song of repentance...
