1764

I take another look
go to the book and
turn back a page

nothing’s changed
the story’s the same

and written in Indian ink

no connection that I can see
but I take another look to be
sure.

accusing a muse of being confusing
confuses the issue,
that’s if there is an issue which
issues from a union

I confer with confederates
preferring the South as I do.

I take another look at you,
the view is amazing.
