And so they go

And so they go

And so they go

Those that are on the cusp

Young men and women

With secrets and dreams

And unexploded fears

Congregate and dissipate

An intense human tide

So drawn to beauty

That tragedy attends in flight

They fizzle and burn

A contagion of energy. Inchoate

Beautiful in an unstoppable rhythm

That leaves scorch marks

Stains and wounds that are the innocents

Inevitable even before

It was known

And then the youths are gone.
