The Image of Ineptitude

The image of ineptitude,
The picture of uncouth,
A maladroit incompetence
Grown fine and strong since youth —

The ideal of ungainliness,
An overflowing lack —
The image of ineptitude,
And total dearth
Of knack

Love the Moment, Feel the Wind

Love the moment, feel the wind,
Make believe you never sinned,
Saying words you can’t rescind —
Love the moment, feel the wind.

Wear your glamor like a prize,
Wrap it all in silk and lies,
Interlaced with alibis —
Wear your glamor like a prize.

Once, you were a fair man’s daughter,
Now you lead the weak to slaughter,
Laughing, leaping, like an otter,
Preening for the watching eyes —

Love the moment, feel the wind,
None of this on you gets pinned,
You the ranks firsthand have thinned —
Love the moment, feel
The wind

An Angry Kind of Love

They had an angry kind of love
That would erupt in passion;
They lived their dream or nightmare, then,
According to that fashion.

The picture looks so innocent:
A moonlit night for lovers —
But words of hatred always beat
What happens under
Covers
