Circle Ends
for M.L.R.

all of them in a circle
sucking on-
sucking down cigarettes

Maya, my wife-to-be, among them

trying to done time
as my mother used to say

but they will be done
before time is done
they will end before time ends

their time will end
before time's time comes

they are making merry
or they think they are

people's methods of making merry
usually make me sad

angels weep
not glad
