AN ALLEGORY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I offer my back to the silken net
Last Line: Say, “how everything shines”


I can see how a child
would believe it is new
to the world and needs
to be cared for
and I can see
how an old man near death
would require the same treatment
his death new to him
and to me.
