oh, and by the way...

my home stretch
blurs in the heat--

shimmering on a liquid horizon
of mirage and anguish--

the regret of living in flesh
incomprehensible to all

but those who feel--which is most of us...

go figure why we botch so much
in the name of a god

we can only imagine wrongly--

I'm glad my time is at hand--
much more time alive can only further
kill my soul--and only God can call that time--
