Tacet Lake by Samuel Anthony

Tacet Lake


When the cabin grew too warm

I went to tacet lake

To run three times around its edge

And hear blue bottles break.


Cause Papa Bear had had too much

And what was I to say?

I thought I’d never once relive

His troubles on that day.


But time has passed and now I am

Far from those waters deep

And who am I to thank, I ask

When love I cannot keep?


“It’s not enough to try,” she says

(My liver numbs her call)


As a man I’ve tried to learn these things

But as a child I learned them all
