A Family
Easy has not shown its face around here. Its cardboard body, soggy with smiles, has taken the wrong street, changed a 1 into a 7, mistaken lawn ornaments for that crooked fern with snail trouble. Easy has not noticed us with our hands tucked in declawed fear into our sleeves. It has not thrown a key against our door or added a few days, like loose change, to a piece of paper.

Old Men of Skid Row
these old men beat their heads nightly against the four walls forced to listen to death's call the pain so great that a fifth of whiskey brings no relief men who envy those fortunate enough to escape men on the verge of suicide men who wait with nothing to look forward too but an obituary column so small it fits them like a charm bracelet

Poetry endangers the established order
of the soul - Plato

REPAIR : resort, frequent or habitual going; concourse or confluence of people at or in a place; making one's way; to go, betake oneself, to arrive; return to a place; to dwell; to recover, heal, or cure; to renew; to fix to original condition. -- O.E.D.

Congress of the United States
at the City of New-York, on 4 March 1789
THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.

Amendment VII
In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.
