life being as predictable as it is
dreams will wilt in the mind
desire will dry out like a desert
amends will fix nothing
(the pieces having formed new wholes)
and as mercy will be weak as a weed
and love disappear like snow in the sun
and the only abundance will be unforgiveness
betting on all of these will not undo
the tiny surprises can could be an upset
it's all an easy call
and never beats any odds
especially the ones you lay....
