On The Other Side - Poem by Martine Kolber

On the other side
He sits and reads
On the other side
He feels no greed

On the other side
He’s always been
From the other side
He’s always seen

On the other side
He feels home
On the other side
He created his Rome

He is the Emperor
The leader and the beggar
The beginning and
The end of it all

On the other side
He is in it all
On the other side
He’s the protecting wall

    The great incessantness gesture of this young poet makes it clear
    is the Emperor
    The leader and the beggar
    The beginning and
    The....loose crown of odd deeds... (Report) Reply
