Circular Ellipsis

 

at twenty I wrote a poem

that would be a song sung

by a woman in her twenties when I was sixty

 

at thirty I wrote a poem

that was a dream I had at twelve

of a woman who is eternal

 

at forty I found that place

between the biding time and fully awake

which activated at fifty

when someone showed up

and showed me that point in my dreaming

when they first arrived, and how it all looked

through their eyes

 

so that when I turned sixty a girl of twenty

would know there would be ears tuned

to the song she would sing

because it was their voice

who brought it to her

in the first place

 

and always will...
