Lately, I suspect I'm 
my insouciance  

and spates of obsessed 
for weightiness—forsaking 

all meaning 
to focus 
on timing—

in the hopes that 
this surfeit of 
vacancy and lack 

may yet 
amalgamate into 
a mallet—

a mallet which 
one day, I'll be able 
to swing 

and whack 
all those nonchalant moles 
of regret 

that keep popping 
up from these holes 
in my feelings.
