Raw Advice


they aren’t new views and don’t
contain fresh insights ‘proved of
everyday reality – more a mesh
of remedies, of tried and true, a
jibe in flippant jest or two to say
who cares; no rude warning of a
reckoning if things don’t change
around the bend

so there it lies, no less a victim
than contention guised as good
though raw advice; we want the
same, a single end wherein the
fires don’t singe dependent life
contingent on an Orchards sale
