Compensation

"A crack in everything God has made."


The sweet

            the bitter

              the lamb

the boar

compensation's

             climate and soil

morose ruffian

             with pretty sons

horse/running man

fish/swimming man

       infractions of love

and equity

           as memory

holds   a life

        by force

of will


(from The Portable Emerson)
