Benison

and at some point
forever
is still not enough

no matter the beauty
that is left between
eleven
and
eleven

no matter the holiness
of the hour, there is
still
someone saying
still

you have used that
before
you have said that
before
you have meant that
before

yet
it is still not
                       enough
it does not
                       matter
enough

and you are
not
       enough
not
       enough
not
       enough

to stop the dogs
howling
to stop the users
prowling
to stop the  cats
yowling

not enough
not enough
not enough

never enough

to stumble from
night
         to
noon
with a smile
an engimatic
                            smile

that says
                 long
                 want
                 need
that says
                 never
                 never
                            never
enough
