Not To Last - Poem by Kurt Philip Behm

I survived the 60's,
can I ask the same of you…

With soul in tact, my body wracked,
and conscience split in two

My parents now have I become,
these days of future past

With bloodshot eyes and memory owned
—by that decade not to last

(Villanova Pennsylvania: July,2019)
