Fool Letting

by

Brent Fuller

We keep a clock
But thwart its movement
As a cog
In things neglected

Keep calendars
Without appointment
A plethora
Of reeking ointment

Canít see daughter.
Hurry her stain.
Donít fix the roof
Heap stock in vain

Play victim,
Learn
Next time it rains
Skip school
Skip work
To weigh the pain

Put it past the woe in you
Let panic
Guard the whore in you
Still famous tricks
And rhetoric too
Are dubious, dull
Denouncing you
