IN MEMORIAM

what then IS life? ....

a place
where
sooner or later
disaster
befalls
some one
I love ....

and for whom
I've had
for some internal tensions
of my own
too little time and care
too scant
affection ....

and
am left

with loss
guilt
memory
regret

time lost
and
responsibility ....

.... betrayed

4th August 1991
