the man had reasons

enough to fill any hole

& I admit I tried for a while

to knock every one in

until I gave that up too

indolence is an infectious dis ease

his mother lived in France

middle of nowhere

needed people to go do

clear up clear outs

& i lit a bonfire or two

helped plug a gap

while he sat thousands away

dripping onto the wires

he wanted to do this

his if onlys filled the air

he hadn’t the money

to make the journey

& I was living on fumes

but made the distance

did what I could

while he sat on shoulds

some coulds

but none of I wills
