Paul Corman-Roberts

Rolling the Dice One More Time at the Last Chance Ego Death


You aren’t really


taking the time


to enjoy being


away from home.



& even if you danced


it would still


be less frenetic


than your quietude




& if we groped


ardent & fumbling


it would be


more serene still


than your imperious meditations




& if we reach


that vista where


our convergence ends,



will you take


but one moment


 


to look in my eyes


to look in my scars


to look in my thorns




and how far


will you run



when you see


the mesh nest


I made for you


there?
