PERMANENCE, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: I am leaving earth with little knowldge of it
Subject(s): Transience

I see a man and woman strolling together
down the street and suddenly ask myself,
Why are they here? Why walking the earth
as if in possession? And I am left
breathing quickly but then diverted
by a car in my path or a woman
whom I know or am attracted to.
Beyond that I will grow old.
