*** [untitled seven]

aware of his grammatical inadequacy
mr nothing considered the differences
between the simple past and the present
perfect tenses as overused by the poet
preterite somehow could not capture
the consequences of his past actions

armed with a dictionary still unsure
how to face the old memory of kirrha
not to mention the endless ringing
phones in the pockets on mount meron
he listened to the bells of the cathedral
and added matzos do the shopping list
