The purview of the animals

How a small idea
wanes smaller still:
to leave with a lunatic
from the lunatic mill:
how exult what sanity is—
a compromise of spirits,
a maturing to malaise:
we hear the best among us
regret their teenage years:
the roar of aging
aches furthermore instilled:
all the good die young in
the shadow of older things:
the purview of the animals
is to witness of our ills—
