  • Tommyrot


    Insects flit and zigzag about
    Their chosen duties
    Like invisible particles
    That scaffold
    Our flesh
    So we are told

    No one believes that
    Tommyrot
    Or that we were all once warehoused
    In one infinitesimally
    Small dot
    Of nothingness

    I do not consciously remember
    A time
    When I was not truly here
    Or not engaged in speaking words
    That later celebrated in poems
    The wondrous world

    What tall tale first fed
    on Tommyrot?
    That trench warfare
    stood on trenchfoot.
    That Boers were not
    the boors the War Dept. said?
    That the Mahdi's rousing words would
    not see Gen. Gordon dead?
    That the memories of childhood weren't
    locked inside your head,
    before you learned the language
    for your poems to be read.

    A man of such eloquence, would find it difficult to remember a time before poetic articulation!
