Fascicle [5]


some begin before dawn and end at noon, others begin in full light and end at midnight
my private lair went everywhere learning what could be done by doing what I could do
women taught me more than I could learn,  I laboring in men’s fields to lie with women
I too need your succor, you need mine more, what is there to do and how can it be done
in my aging I have come to a place where I cannot go on without words taking me there
at dawn or in bright day I am who I still am at noon, and no one else after any midnight
