Standard

Come close and quibble
for a moment, for both our sakes,
and maybe I’ll learn something.
Like how to keep my dreams

from evaporating at the first
strained rays of sun, or how
not to lose my mind
when crisis comes to call.

Of course, all the pain,
radiant in my ribs,
is basically here to stay.

There’s much fault to contend
(and be content) with
on an average day.
