"boy you're always saying good-bye
but you're still here
you claim to have nothing to say
and take thousands of words to say so..."
and I answer him
Whitman also tried to contain everything
in one work
and left a fuller body of material
with all the variants included..."
so he says and says and says
"the Good Gray Blowhard
didn't know when to stop"
and knowing there's no ceasing
(at least until we reach God)
"missing me one place search another
I stop some where waiting for you..."
