With lies, self-denial, unspoken regret
And the sick eyes that blame; before the divorce

a proud rejected man
who lived along the edges

I sang my sour tone
and all my love was howling
conspicuously alone.”

A book or memorized one plot,
Or found a mind I did not doubt,

And one by one the solid scholars
Get the degrees, the jobs, the dollars.”

To themselves, "We have nowhere to go but down;
The great destination is to stay."”
