This Way – (audio)


In a quiet state

I sit alone

hear the raindrops outside

dancing across autumn leaves

the damp texture

of an autumn day.


I sit alone

wondering just

how long can my life

go on leading this seeming



I sit alone

hoping some gesture

some meaning

beyond our own

human compassion

some reality that


take me away


I sit alone

I watch the skies darken

I think of just how possible it is to be

this way.
