we remember well

by Philip F De Pinto


wretched figures
with gnarly elbows
dimpling unto pillows

well into their arid years
pestering us from
windows - shouting

to come in
from our Youth lest
we catch our death of it!

well we caught
our death of it alright
O but to be slain once more

by such pelting down
of youth
as will never rain

on us

brilliant expression of the passion and recklessness of youth, captured in a most original way!
