There will be something you want
out of it. Want out of it. It will be

so tender an extortion to resist.
Find it tempting. Find it acceptable

a release. Release from all liability
to get it right. Make it. Make it right

as if nothing else had gone amiss,
as if nothing had gone lost. And I’ll

have to say no. No. And no. I will say
so. With stipulations. As well you know.
