In the Army, stationed in Europe in 1979, missing my wife.
HOW MUCH LONGER


How much longer?

This timeless space in my being,

fraught with nibbling little

fears of this
non-reality

being my true existence?

And you
at best a memory,
or worse--

only a fabrication of my desires.



If aloneness is reality,

then I choose to sink into
the deepest catatonic reaches

--and dwell therein with you.
