The suitors

Above your head
A man of good sense
At your feet
Superb insensate
Wassail hypocritical
A docile watchdog
Far off from you
Far off from your regard
In the shadow of your trace
The aleatory
Horrendously solitary
Bargains over silence
The sails of a ship off course
Savor in advance
The tragical play
Of an atrocious anguish


Paul Novis
