in their sheer summer dresses

their beauty

on full hot display

it mattered when

I was a younger man

and now that I'm old

I see the joke I always suspected

the pleasures of the instant

do not always outlast

the drudgery of devotion

conditioning us to our lessons in love

what is bright and immortal

always dims to darkness and fatality in the flesh....
