Inarticulate dreamer, what do they have

that you have not?

What have they remembered

that you forgot?

A better time; a place to go?

While you grope, do others know?

Neo-technician who cannot learn

However do your passions burn?

What is behind you before you turn?

And . . . where will you be when it comes?

Blank verse philosopher, do you think?

For a while it's clear, then gone.

No matter, it can be found in drink

Or better yet, stays gone . . .
