Further Talk From Tony


Believe me this time,
the curse that runs its course
and comes back to singe its sender
is my idea of health, good fortune;
a lesson learned from heat
is blazed forever.

I'd like to learn a lesson
and recover.

As for putting the sign on someone,
less and less would I do so,
racing as we are to the same post,
bitten by the same fly.

Recovered, I could melt into a doorway.
