The one answer left to me
  is captured in verse

Old roadmap destroyed
  old play unrehearsed

The light becomes blocked
  as it shines from without

Its story an old one

The road to this moment
  paved over in verse

Its bedrock a question
  an inner rebirth

My eyes closing tightly
  the last chant has begun

Past-future in ruins
  as within—I become

(Villanova Pennsylvania: June, 2018)
