Affairs

Scattered diamonds in
the highest skies of the
endless universe are not
movements of procrastinating
youth

but they are sentences
on public papers of offices
from Moscow to Hongkong and
Sao Paulo to New York city.

Wild beatings of husbands
to wives of doubtful marriages
send messages to police stations
from Cambodia to Colombia and
Nicaragua to India.

Songs from the mouth of
this generation are tunes
of endless reasons from good
to bad philosophy and

someone beside me
cannot take them anymore.
