AUX SEND

Lest it should 
seem
as if he's actually singing 

you something—rest
assured, dear reader, that
he's merely returning 

back to the world 
what he's already heard—

a fraction 
or so 
of a whole lifetime later

only—darker,
more diffuse,
and a little less useful;

because a poet can't explain
even the tail-
end of things—he just covers it

quick—
with feathers.
