I am a simple man

caught in an interval

of history, and thinking

back and thinking forward,

and living in the space

between what made me so

and formed the world thus 

and what shapes world  to come;

and then imagining what will

pass when I am gone to the

ground from whence I came.


I am a man of contradictions;

wanting the sky and the space

beyond and yet given to be

the tasty food of worms.
