Before You Were Born

Right before you were born

I couldn’t write a thing,


thought I saw death.  Decided

I had already


pickled my liver, was fully concerned

with the hypoth-ogy – the floating oracle-tory –


saw and heard finality in everything.  Time   spent    here

               just a ruse.  A glitch


in the main act, the void, parcels

of futility


divvied out, obsequiously   

for that one shot          done                deal.  But then the light


bends in

and I know


that I am waiting, and what was once

a mere intellectual exercise, steps in – un-      and      a-         bound, serenading


me, obsequiously! at the collar of my new serendipity, yes this tall man

dressed in thistledown.
