Be Smirch

Help, I find myself stained,
coffee or reputation appear the same
on a light blue shirt, recognition 
that something is there that ought
to be somewhere else, in the mouth
rather than across the world;

I do not know about the extent of 
the issue, but pick up the paper and
write your guesses to propagate the
pain of making oneself visible,
because the premise is broken
when your promise is spoken;

Hold faster to the accelerating pace
of a universe whose stars are neither constant
nor a consolation to the mind that wants
to solve every problem in a total way:
the big differ is a major bear in your 
backyard, who you can feed or enjoy.
