like a blazing summer in childhood, scalding like the first
stranger’s touch, enticing like all those whoreson
numbers in an old address book, like music and singing
audible at twilight from a distant part of town.

Elizabeth Lindsey Rogers – Abandoned Block Factory, Arkansas

All that is left

A.E. Housman – A Shropshire Lad: XIII

When I was one-and-twenty

‘Give crowns and pounds and guineas
But not your heart away;
Give pearls away and rubies
But keep your fancy free.’
But I was one-and-twenty,
No use to talk to me.
