When I hear my cutis snivel
I know it’s hankering.
In your sufficiency is solace.
Emotions legitimize appetence.
Words fink on feelings.
How do I hush up this
Ephemeris chalks another chart:
this coziness isn’t for me.
When I grok I can make yours truly cry,
I score I must be close to myself.
In spite of shortcomings,
how does one string it?
In this lies the fiber to fulfillment.
