To write so as to
lessen the weight

time slips through my fingers
like so much water

To write so as to
digest meaning

I had been riding backward
on a ponderous train

To write so as to
possess the moment

what is tangible in nebulous events
and elusive in incident

To write so as to
carry on

the massive themes of life
accumulate in the soul
