The Farewell Sestina
It was Walter Cronkite, wasn't it, who said,
'And that's the way it is, ' at the end of the show,
safe in the knowledge he had done his job well
and standing by for all the other things
that needed to be done at close of day-
how utterly unlike the way I am.
The time has come to wonder who I am;
it is time to say what has not yet been said.
