I’m from New Jersey, no
Not really. I mean, geographically
NJ and DE and MA and CA –
Yes, but my heart, my soul?
I’m from a deep deep unseen place
That began in the bottomless sea,
Warmed with sun, peace, and possibility
A numinous unnamed place I can’t see…yet.
I’m from the land of yet
Haven’t traveled to Australia…yet
Didn’t read A Tale of Two Cities…yet
Haven’t written my masterpiece….yet.
I’m from love, at least that’s where
I hope I began, and I hope to
Shine out my love, from dawn til dusk, until
It’s time to return…to love’s genesis.
Which is…well, late. I’m
Always late, because we all know
That time doesn’t really exist –
Where we’re from.
