it's plain matter of circumstance





it's plain matter of circumstance
and acquired powers
of persuasion—

beware, my love,

for all, someday,
may be made to say:
five's the sum of two pair;

regardless of color of eyes
or persistence of
lingering conscience,

given a form of stress,
a Rubashov or otherwise,
shall each have to finger a Julia.
