before stripling notion transforms




before stripling notion transforms
into nubile, fast

with doubt; for caution
does so prevail over vim's fire

by design; while qualm's claws
have yet to clamp vise-tight—
numbness has had no time

to congeal as it faithfully does;
forgo the footnotes, write the prose

instead, for once
regret later on; if you feel you must—

before feeling succumbs to pinpricks'
lusts— tingling spine and doubt erupts;

you must

if you feel

you must

if you feel

you must
