Loneliness is not tolerable

Loneliness is not tolerable
for any family man loosed
from spokes & tensions to
limp [forlorn] along uneven

roads/ Laws of motion will
be left unread [if nothing is
left opened]/ Seizures fill a
vacuum & clotted love will

stick between sore valves/
Care – a four-lettered word
blunts by anger’s revenge/
Asks for consciousness of

locked rooms – lost if keys
aren’t slid into blind doors
[& turn! – unfasten a lonely
soul bent under by reverb]

I have stiffened – sat alone
& so unaware/ Shut down
[I’ll ignore egotistical calls
left gelid in my empty hall]
