North American Dreaming: When It's All Said

...Alas, I am numb,
Numb to life's way,
Old hat, worn shoe,
Crumpled bed, Tis I, tis me, aye me...

But from the "old hat, worn shoe'' that is William Burkholder comes a flow of luminous poetry. Please click on North American Dreaming in the menu on this page to read more of it.

When it's all said and done,
Really,
I know nothing.

Opinion only,
The buttons on this,
Life's vestment.

No man of letter's
Am I,
No laureate of word
Or song,

Molded by the corners,
The flats, and crevasse's,
Of my life,

I know how to breathe,
How to eat, drink.

There are times when I
Wish that I could have learned,
To cry, openly, unabashedly,
With great star-swept emotion.

Alas, I am numb,
Numb to life's way,
Old hat, worn shoe,
Crumpled bed, Tis I, tis me, aye me.

However, joy abounds,
When pen comes to hand,

When uneducated fingers
play across the keyboard.

Sharing these thoughts,
these words,
with you.
