There is creativity in completion and completion
in creativity. Consummation is an end, not dead
-end. Finis augurs fruitfulness of other kinds.
Need is for the highfalutin. Subtlety is for savants.
Say it loud, lay it thick, I tell myself and others.
There is hunger for hoo-ha. Celebrating with one-
self is an attempt to chisel it: slurring at sessions,
way of scoping an alpenstock.
