Between The Glass Sheets

4 December 1981
"The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost."
- Gilbert K. Chesterton

"I hate mankind, for I think myself one of the best of them, and I know how bad I am."
- Joseph Baretti, quoted in Boswell's Life of Samuel Johnson

Myself, I am, of small frame,
of crowded nights and tired green days

That which is,
some quality unnamed, unseen, and uncrushed

Of honey orange flowering vine,
of sweet gangrenous waterfall
and unexpected release

Of sighs and melodramas,
of hopelessness and devout faith
in nothing
and the rest of the universe

I am a handful of what may not exist, I drift
searching for a definite impossibility.

Come into the cave of my mind....
