In the interval between wakingand knowing,for a moment,less than a moment,I forgot you had died.
The crashing blissonly dawned asI knew my mistake.Bent in half and heavingas one never does again.
Then a lifetime of nightsspent courtingjust that kind of sleep,that kind of wakinglike a vicious gift.
Knowing myself a fraud.Too old to need you now.But if --for a quarter secondthrough the needle'seye again just once --

I don’t want to sentimentalize their lives,Lives I wouldn’t want to live, but did,
Happily as most children, thoughI wouldn’t eagerly again. It was a life
Lived for children and dependent uponChildren’s spark, dark and childish
In their absence. Its glees were simple as bellsRing, gold coins spill, a priest sings.
But kids are mostly quick, get up and get out,Leaving behind what’s best left but not
Without remorse. They return, but can’t,So when they do they dull too which can’t be
Proved, rebuked, or ignitedBy metaphor, for who are these parents
But blunderers like you and me, adult othersAs unlike us as our origins, full of hope and
Children hopping around and off, becauseDespite our hopes there’s only love to hold us
Here, a love without hope except for childrenQuick to grow and go to the coast or, better,
Cross to Italy, beautiful Italy, where the futureLacks capital to oppress the persisting.
