Wisdom’s Tooth

A young poet is to an

older man

 

As an old poet is to a

younger man

 

When young then old,

when old then young

 

The future borrowed,

the past twice sung

 

The old man’s knowledge,

the young man’s youth

 

To bite the deepest

—with wisdom’s tooth

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2017)
