W i t n e s s

I have seen many eagles

in recent years

so different

like a date without desteny


s t a g e  t w o

and when you give up

-perhaps that’s the deal-

like all that died before

you get old

at any age


s t a g e  t h r e e

then this misunderstanding

full of promise of modern fable

of a missing link

between age and mind

between losing home

and losing time

between you

and him


(London 1985)
