The Letter, 1974 - Poem by Frank Bana

A certain man was left alone
Creating work for his hands to own
Left alone by his woman lover
Abandoned by a man, his brother

Humbled he lay reading poems
Relearning faith from modern bibles
Reading in poems of a fool Isaiah
Instructed in his own desire

A dreaming man once found a letter
Beloved hands, but not for him
A letter returned to the stars
To free him from his burning heart.
