...and Again

I cut half a line, eliminate the stanza break (smoother!) add an extra word that is not ornamentation, complicate a line where a tiny bit of complexity is justified, make another complex note more simple.

Yes. Done. Finished. Finito.

Light a cigar in the rain and stare into the trees.
