#2,487 Through severances

Through severances I have
emerged –
an eligible man –
I use fewer serrated words –
no slice of hatred unfurled –
no bloodied spurts –
less is
pumping hard –
I won by a
toss by rubbing sovereigns –
a small fortune
[my settled
estate in my hand –
no held
birds] & Feste’s whirligig of
time’s revenge long off-set –
let loose from hate’s sways –
my being is now elsewhere
[not one of breezily recalls]
