NO PLEDGES, by                    
First Line: Forever is a timeless word
Last Line: Are we secure.

Forever is a timeless word
Yet harbors death;
Fetter our lips lest inadvertently
We give it breath.

Say only Now, the sovereign Now, ill-fated
To endure.
Life momently illumined, only of this
Are we secure.
