The Grade

The Grade

Those who deprecate
routinely the labour
to raise inner and outer
(since no work’s ever
either)—these exasperate.
And they desecrate
with their small flippant flails
of simply and You just
the spirit-gym lather
reeking must
through perfumes of prescription,
the moment by moment
discipline grasped and grazed,
lost and retried
lost and retried,
to slog and lift conditions
up actual hills,
knowing the grade.
