No Excuse

piles of books wait to be read
books about books better than
what actually happens politics
distracted suffering grotesque
mistakes men mad with power

art is no excuse for forgetting
only sensibility counts loving
one other person at a moment
and as long as you both live is
equally the story remembered

I have to go on doing what I
can more or less as time goes
past filled full with responses
acting on choices made earlier
saying what could be expected

what is remains alive despite
certainty chipping along seams
identity nipping heels running
between tasks of self-becoming
obligated to relish playing me
