Down's Before Birth
Down’s before birth
If you could change this life
for a real one,
- say - with a fuller story
wherein you have a new handle
marauding through a spanking world
maybe in a place more lost
- would you go?
And how would you feel about your new life?
Imagine you’re ready,
standing moments before birth
in pounding rain
shivering with all anticipation
turning down your little dial of mind
to nothing – wanderer -
with such a lot to give:
perhaps it’s not so dark and cold
as you fight your way into a sweeter handicap;
as fool, magician, simple creature, king.
