Poem: Ephemera

Updated on July 13, 2017

i was told

last night, by a woman

whose life was passing her by

that the card in my hand

indicated that i was to be reborn


now i sit

with ink from a borrowed pen

that i borrowed from a friend

who also gave me his food

as America was passing us by


and i

so long to express this lovely isolation

we are the light

of a single star

and no star

is ever very far

from my single thoughts

they touch

every one


i am

so many colors

when i divide myself

in the water that falls

poured by a man

with no plans at all
