WHERE IS HERE?


I am the Boy
and the Lover
of a woman that is insanely a wonder
I am the Man and the Fear
of Time marching onwards and older

She is the Dream
and the nightmare,
a cavernous Shyness her unsaid motto
I am the Truth and her mirror
in a world not getting any clearer

Where is Here?

You shut your mind
How can you think
that you can have it all
I am the screaming skin
longing for your gentle Sins
I am the Truth and your mirror
in a world not getting any clearer

She is Indecision
I am her Incision
We are the King and Queen of fantascene
I am Her and She is Me,
kissing cogs in an emotional war machine

And we can Live
or Die wondering

where is Here?

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
