And so they tell me,
"She is free, now -
unlike you,
she does not ache
as joys fade into memories,
nor pace her will
to poor meat's faltering -
she sees redemption
in the anguished lost,
and, in the storms of tragedy,
smiles at the coming of the rain."

Darling, don't leave -
behind's an abyss,
ahead's a desert of the soul.
I did not guess
that mercy so could leave me
to envy bone

- 1985

John, once again an eloquent depiction of the soul's landscape. "Poor meat's faltering," lovely.
