Poem: Passing Occasions

by

comment
1.
The forgotten squall
yields to the expectation
of the breast.

2.
The demands of convention
insist on a meaningless
education.

3.
The insistence of flesh
exposes the frailty
of longing.

4.
The inevitability of war
reveals the delusion
of invincibility.

5.
The struggle for subsistence
shatters the promise
of romantic love.

6.
The failure of expectation
leads to the corruption
of values.

7.
The return to infancy
longs for the comforts
of the breast.
