Hopeless

Procter, Dod, 1892-1972; The Golden Girl

Hopeless

Even the golden daughter is hopeless

Despite her combination of grace and speed

Even the golden daughter even in shorts is hopeless

Can this be what the world is looking for?

Even the golden daughter even in shorts

Even at this time of night is hopeless

Bare legged but royal looking

Even her smashing the window of the van is hopeless

But she’s hungry enough to accept that

As within the holy, charged doorway

She looks up at the domelight and says

We don’t even know where we’re going
