Same Name? No Relation

Same Name? No Relation

1. Accepting what I can't do
is making me quiet
because it's all a little painful
like one from the nether centuries
an intellectual man of leisure
saying, modestly,
‘it's one of my few pleasures.’.

2. The dogs
locked up
in a very small
wired box
in a very large
fenced yard
aren't considering
whether they would
if they could.

3. People who remind me of people
who remind me of sadness
nasty, small, little sadness
like ‘What means this’ thing joy.

4. What are the things I cannot
laugh about properly?
They are my history.
