Le temps - ivoire

Le temps – ivoire (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

the fundamental assertion
of consciousness
is its own importance

the boys and girls
learn what to say
and the women and men
try to make you say it

love puts itself out
to a cold which was before
the heat after the anger
of cultivated sorrow

to see is not to see
and think lightly of others

for the moment
you exist in control
