When I Am Alone


I think I am the universe.
When I am alone
I am no body- my true verse.

Searching life
I went to the jungle
And the jungle is in me
I have forgotten.

Be sure, I am not a sage
I am always in my cage
And the cage is open
And yet everything I shun.

I am just a man
Keeping the entire world within
And telling a lies
I smile with my helplessness.

That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
