DESCRIPTION
If we could look forward? If they could have looked forward?
at what kind of life
along what kind of dotted lines?

At the top of the stairs, turn sadly right

On the table in the office
lay down your life, still beating.
Sit in the broken chair and wait.

Your help cometh from the law.

Your help in what you looked forward to will come
from the lawyers who were leaders who were elected

They are your servants in dignity

It is an open book
rebound and dedicated
its thankless footnotes roll-called day by day

Set down your parcel of privileges and rights
and know what you looked forward from
and now look back upon
that once was formed of equal parts
of platitudes and rust

Fill in your name on that allotted line — you are yourself the Law.
