The Girls in His Past -


written by Gerard Luther Clarkes


I work the world

the world works it

on me

and with mere words

I chip at it

and all the world


chips back at me

yet for respite

I lie down now and now

to contemplate

all that I’ve wrought

on it in me

because it is

just what it seems

but never quite

as if at playing

only I can hide

and seek

and find

the game

the place

to name

to be
