something sweet to clear the palate

One of those people

spent his youth

early adulthood

being attractive

& then failed to notice

the world

crowd

had moved on

was now clutching at straws

to save from drowning

in the obscurity beckoning

of being just a n other

taking on lovers

anybody

who made him feel good

for a day

hour or two

while failing to notice

none of those

would be there in the long run

they too

were seeking something sweet

just

for now
