futility of hope

a little birdie told you once
never trust the early showers
to get to really know someone
detach from the life that you call ‘ours’

progression = dispossession
of what you gained in the past
discard your first impressions
they aren’t meant to (be) last

your next-door misanthrope
rages against all optimism you know
& together with the futility of hope
gives rise to a world of sorrow
