Nuances of living…

*

Even the ‘nays’ and ‘ayes’ of youth have their revenge.

*

The intoxication of our early-life responses eventually gives way,

turns in on itself and introduces us

to the consequence of blind enthusiasm.

*

Having thus acquired deliberation…

And no longer rash…

We learn, instead, to side against our own youth with the self-same fervour.

*

Ten years on…

We see that this, too, was naive.
