Find someone to trust

Find somebody to trust

Even if it is a continent away

Someone who can give and return

Who can ask and receipt-like hands can open

And see

What it is that you are saying

It is to be found in the dark and in the night

But not by day when all worries disappear yet

There remains space

Where the friends once


Where friends once were, I do suppose, that it

Takes a long time to render

Them ineffectual against

Your slander and respite

For the main is about to be called

Them.  And the remainder, us.
