The Teenager

All that emotion! DNA demanding to be shed
to populate the planet on its own
and in its image. Those young men all led
to reckless dances in a torrid zone
of cyclones, thundercracks and grand affairs;
enduring disappointment, triumph, hope
and ordinariness. The crises, cares
and spots all settle back. Somehow they cope
with analytic algebra and trig,
rift valleys, enzymes, Molière or Keats,
and wait, anticipating that their big
romance won’t peter out in dull defeats.

I am interested in receiving updates when you post new blog entries. Is this possible?

I don't know how to do that, but I do post every day, sometimes several times, so just mark me as a favorite and click.
