The Final Dot


so here you are
a dot wanting relevance in a long
sentence

no one wants you
they want something that does not end

and so they are bombarded
with lots of question marks

and bombastic interjections
not the fourth of July stuff

but those that tears every nerve
that shreds off every skin and flesh

oh, it is too painful
and they find no hope in happiness
now

now, they pause, they
want you

they want you.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
