Come, she said,
dark tongued,
eyeing wide eyed,

(naked once dreamed,
he spied), these are
our best years,

young spirited,
fresh felt, flesh touched,
loved then, loved much.

He went, having been there,
much wearied,
much spent,

paid by the minute,
hour, second,
time gone, not lent.

These were our
best times, she said,
best of works,

deeds done, good deeds,
or crimes, or having done
and gone, said goodbyes,

spoke truth as seen
or worse said, just long
in the teeth lies.

She lies where now
where death rules,
where dark shades lie,

where days
are untimed
or unspent,

here is all eternal
or in this vicinity,
pure infinity.
