THE GREAT UNKNOWN

I

I seek a time away from home
in a land unknown— somewhere
I can go and shape around myself
a sense of longing.

I could use pain;

I could find it in an experience
like this, like a journey into
the foreign nature of discomfort.

II

I have slept,
warm,
for so long.

Shouldn’t I shake?

I have stood,
still,
through each song.

Shouldn’t I shake?

I have hanged,
mute,
like a gong.

Shouldn’t I shake?
