What Do We Know of the World and Why Do We Know It?

You are thinking
And you are sinking
Into that thinking.–
I cannot find you there.

It has a story to tell:
All this around you
And not a word to spare
At the end of the telling.

In one eye
The whole world can wither and die
And in the other eye be reborn . . .

Where are you now
Who emerged from me full throated?

I recognized those old, naive fragments
in the robustness of your stride.
