Tongue-tired

I’ve filled myself in the wrong way,

Like a failed crossword puzzle –

Let me start over.

Tell me, why should I care about should?

And why would I care about would?

I honestly don’t, and never did –

Maybe I, perhaps with some prompting,

Have just convinced myself that I do.


Can I retire from language and from sight?

I’d like to just be again.

My God !!1 I associate with that; I have been there recently: all the ‘shoulds’ and ‘woulds’– it’s never ending, going down the rabbit hole of blame; very well done; you know what got me in, made me want to read on? the stunning, enticing, enigmatic opening !!
