LXI

by

In darkness slowly awakening


To what I have not always known:

That it is too late in the day or the lifetime


To change course or return –  with


Any stainless sense of purpose –  to the dream.


The notion that I might ever accomplish anything


Remains confined to dusty imagination


And when I close my eyes, it is still too bright.
