“And While We Love”


“And While We Love”

And while we love we see but one of us
May pass through a single space, one
Will ride the northern run
Toward the right and trust
The left will soon produce
A southbound pilgrim free
And safely bound, and while his
Soul’s in transit, quietly he reduces
His necessities, and so it goes with fellow travellers
Along the needle’s eye and so it is within this austere place. Passengers
Once removed within the present do not truck with languor,
Neither do they traffic with a mutual struggle; revellers
At feast and lovers in their thrall arrive too soon
To seek the waterline alone, and no one gets to shoot the moon.
