Only later in the day do I become calm

Reflect that I now have little to reflect upon

No need for me to seriously understand

The words that I have elected to use

Instead to begin with a new focus

Two new places:

One to understand my mourning of the past

One to understand

How to give full energy

To the responsibilities of my future

However, and wherever

Such froth may be drawn down
