The word connects the eyes
The signs and the goodbyes
But doesn’t connect 2 wants
Flushing 2 personal haunts

One want is this world
The way it wants to word
Running and speaking
A lot to the lot’s seeing

Another is to live without
– – – The wanting to doubt
Or a day to utter the faults
For wanting another cause

There’s much want underfoot
Of these two wants [the hook]
Like clean water in the creek
Barred from running the leak

Sometimes it is held in order
When it wants to beat the other
For it is better the haze of pain
Than cloudless blue with rain

It is best this: ‘long life of can’t’
Than to short live without want
Reality lives subjected to dream
A told is true: “want gets nothing”
