LOOK AT THE PHOTOGRAPHS

IN AN OLD MAN’S ROOM

AS SUNLIGHT DIMS

IN AFTERNOON

PHOTOGRAPHS GIVING

LIGHT TO ANOTHER DAY

LIFE TO ANOTHER WAY

OF A MAN

SOMEONE NOT ME

FOR YOU SEE

I SAW MY VANQUISHED YOUTH

WHERE YOUTH AND BEAUTY

TOGETHERED PLAYED

WHILE REFUSING TO ACCLAIM

OR NAME IT FOR MYSELF

FOR UNLIKE THE WORLD

BEFORE I WOULD NEVER

HAVE DEATH KNOCKING

AT MY DOOR

AND I ALONE IN MY ROOM

TOO WEAK TOO FEEBLE

TO SAY

I WANT YOU

PLEASE

COME IN AND

BRING ME PEACE

THIS DAY
