what I think our next age craves is keyboard’s constant clackfor Patty Templeton, on the occasion of her 39th birthday
ideas gel, structures misbehave, sideways plot attack
and what of dress-up velvets, outrageous rhinestone gleam?
embrace ourselves, the craven and the brave: hips, belly, rack
kindness, yes, due diligence–and reciprocity
learn our tells, our shifts of favor, that discernment’s not lack
it’s time to topple systems, cultivate our gardens, rest
old empires fell while autarchs raved (an encouraging fact)
not to mention what we can’t foresee and never could
hurdles melt, new skills to savor, exalt in changing tack
what we make, we’ll wage against our heartbreak yet to come
beyond all hells, beyond our graves–our mischievous impact
