blotting papers

I

an outcropping –
I don’t know exactly
what that is, but it sounds right.
I am an outcropping

II

treat a pig
like a person
and he will foul
your floor and rugs

III

For none? For thirty?
For thousands?
[No, and not for one either.]
For Yeats and Frost and Donne
[and Millay and several others
all dead now.]

IV
the ignorant
hailed as sages
more dangerous
than a gang of thugs

V

mirages and illusions –
draw your own conclusions
