Corona V



I have grown old, greyed and wasted away

Waiting for you. From my widow’s watch, I

Look to the night sky until it is day,

And then I turn back to bed where I try

To dream once again. How many years now

Since I’ve seen your face, your smile? And for you

How long has it been? Tell me, Virgo, how

Time flows where you are. (A sad, trembling slough.)

(A river, long and mean.) Is it glacial?

The days here erode me, Love. But I hope

Yours are better. Fast, fun, mercurial.

Darkness falls. I will dream of you, I hope.

But hopes are not dreams, and they do not keep

In an eternity of induced sleep.
