It is easier to write about it

than to feel the warmth of your hand


as it reaches into my heart’s warm fjord

of heightened life and there

it feels the gun in your hand

and the stop-start of ambition

that yearns for you to find

a drug

that could make you into

the inspector of your dreams

which helps you but doesn’t

effect me.

To an innocent by-stander it is about time

you all seen-and-not-heard people

understood that it is my own life

that I preach to you

and not

the one called the when-der or the writer

so to speak about it

is to feel that you are all

about to be then

and not now.
