she would have cried oh, was it allowed?
how can I cry she laughed and then
was deemed inappropriate what is the
appropriate response when the day is going down
when it may be the last you have to spend on earth
in the currency of light
and it's overcast, not the gold you found you
wanted to say so many things but the day is going down
the time of translation is near at hand and
the land sleeps under the wing of muted blue.
