I present these poems to you so that, in a few months or years, when I find them in an old notepad on the shelf and burn them out of shame, or die and decompose in my hovel and they are discovered by the unfortunate neices and nephews who are cleaning up my home in the hopeless hope of finding something of value and wearily slide them into a garbage sack, they will have been seen by at least someone and perhaps made an impression or lodged into their mind a line, a phrase, a word, that they will remember with pleasure or with humour and repeat to their pal that they are on a trip in the car with as their own and fail entirely in impressing them.

I also wanted an excuse to write an incredibly on-running sentence. I hope you enjoy.

One can read this, and read it again, and reach a different conclusion. I think that's exactly what you intended

I enjoyed it thoroughly, but i didn't get the first part.

Nursing a rusting wing?

Truthfully in love, and eyes of sin and prayers of want that's good stuff i like it

I don't see the coherence. What do you mean by another hoary actor? Have you found a young lady or has the actor found a young lady? Is it a fantasy?
