I'M GOING BACK TO SOMETHING, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
Last Line: In the emptiness afraid to live
Subject(s): Death

I meet you with a knife in your hand
and here am I holding a gun. We
listen to the gun go off and the knife
ping into the skin. Good-bye, but hello.
We are back in the cosmos together,
circling the sun and waiting
to be born again.
