THE PAST IS THE PRESENT (2), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Revived bitterness / is unnecessary unless / one is ignorant
Last Line: A brass nailed echo.
Subject(s): Time


Revived bitterness
is unnecessary unless
One is ignorant.

To-morrow will be
Yesterday unless you say the
Days of the week back-

Ward. Last weeks' circus
Overflow frames an old grudge. Thus:
When you attempt to

Force the doors open and come
At the cause of the shouts, you thumb
A brass nailed echo.
