Poem: That Other World

I have lived long

in that other world


Not in this

Not in the one I should have


But in that other other

world of bright meaning

heart's ease

overflowing affection

and precious and beautiful loves


I'm old now

That world

must go


And this, too,

the world that has failed me

and I it.


It will fade soon enough

already has begun.

And I will fade away from it.

For I'm old now


And the only world that matters

is that other one

The world

I only half-walked in

only half-inhabited


that afterlife

that soon

one day

will be all my life
