Gross! This Irony


And today again - my mean
Conviviality - How I show affection
With acrimony.

The lady at “the purveyor of
Assumptions” said hello.
I shoved my groceries at her
And said naught.

The war was on as she mustered
Her resources – subtle gestures of
Yea with nay tone, and, as she
Scanned my canned goods.

It is an old fight and I’ve encountered
Too many in these sly strikes at integrity.
I respond mean - the dignity stays clean.

Why? The insufferable ironies that lead to…
No ironies, someday.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
