Nothing To Complain About Right Now

Every biting winter
was fall's soft cliché,
every aperçu
was a drunken bawl.
The queer tongue of our ancestors
is enlivened by the dead
and cobbled by curses.
I've been to countries
where that all lives on.
They saddle up their sins
and shout after the nag:
Improvement by degrees!

    I could not find your email, so I am contacting you with this comment.

    Having our website listed in your blog would be very useful. Therefore, we kindly ask if you could insert our web URL into your resource list.
