Art wrongfully disgraced by authority.
A poet made tongue-tied by rude ignorance.
Purity of honor made shameful.
The poor and dying made into a joke.

i do not regret leaving any of these behind
in my restful death, but i cry and
have remorse only for love, a hostage in
the middle of these corrupting diseases
and inhumanities.
