bent branch, 3/3

• LAST WINTER DID NOT TEACH •

Ignoring what wants to remain in the mind
So, neither, will he or can he stay this time
To graduate, the scar is no longer ‘teacher’
Alone! She is ‘undisputed’ the class leader

Diploma: ‘Revenge is the dish served cold’
To he who rips the dreams that she sowed

Now, she can! …she tries to define ‘sorrow’
In Denial! Today she says to be tomorrow!
Predicted night. Good morning to the day
Thoughts weren’t enough for her getaway

Passion will repeat. Love spells commitment.
The supposed ‘spring heat’ is mere statement.
Now, it’s summer, it’s so fresh and it’s so warm
If last winter did not teach, how can one learn?
