▲ NEWER ▲ | ▼ OLDER ▼

September 24, 1998

 

each attempt to learn more without indulging,

about but not use, more closely spoils the gift

for the surprise that almost mostly revealed

is no more the distant glowing dreamed of hope

but has become a  somewhat tarnished reality

each glimpse pushing back the newness

until all is no longer new but old and worn

and no more desirable for its loss of value
