That Which Must Go

“Open the door to that which must go,
for the loss becomes unseemly when obstructed.”
R.Tagore (Fireflies)

What must go?
And go pronto?
Well, for starters
That Doubt that trills
on the willow branch,
so alluring, outside your window,
on a clear spring day.

It sings its acid song
so sweetly, you nearly sing along.

“Who are you?” it honeys on
“To claim the morn?
Who are you…….?”
