this is the most peaceful

easy night in which

to go to sleep I've felt in ages

free of a life-long mythology

that did nothing but stay

and hamper each move

and how sweet to awaken at liberty

relieved from that morning-after

rue and guilt and fear that maybe I was wrong

no way that will prevail after so many years

wrestling with no demon but myself

and this is the poetry I make of it now

empty and calm as a biography fades

and the reader turns a new page
