HANGMAN

You write like a hangman

without cause to celebrate

and that makes it all

a little light-hearted

when you don’t know

it is foolish to drink

like supper is calling

you in.  To be good

is to write the four letter

words upon the crest

of a knave and not

know it is too cruel

to seep out of the watery shell

of existence.
