Simple Clarity

_____For Jean Donnelly

Oh, Jean, it’s okay

If you do it beautifully,


My name’s rhyme

Nothing else should

Clarify so simple


The pen’s condensation

A long draught

The ink’s condescension

A first draft


The end product

___begins logic

Who creates

I know

______I shall meet—

The scholars—and

The daffodils—

At night the moon—

Diving into the—

Neither rosy nor

___prim is like—

My country is—cross


A young boy lying

Underneath crying

So much—

—as such,

I will sleep

_________Near it.
