THE TOUCH OF THE NEW

By Charles Robert Lindholm

he didn’t mean to do it
he just fell into the trap
and when he finally told her
she gave his face a slap

how could you do this?
she yelled, then cried
I’ve trusted you forever
how long now have you lied?

why would you do this crazy thing
after all that we’ve been through?
he just hung his head
in silence
and then he softly said

“she wasn’t you”

beware
beware
beware my friend
be careful what you do

beware,
beware
beware of
“the touch of the new”
