Previous Convictions

Today after having
accepted some sarcasm from
the shirtless young man on the corner,

I noticed the old dues
no longer apply. & rather
than summon, for help,

any past exhortations
like, “Love is all”, or, “Forever is
a long believable sleep”,

I shifted my plastic bag
full of plastic containers (empty,
unpresumptuous, hot pink)

and quietly fled for the bus.
Hold fast to what you believe?
No way. I’m clean.
