Only-ness is like a song
Where nobody knows the words;
Everything feels right, except
There is no connection —

Only-ness takes you and me
Out of all society
Into our own place and time
Buoyed by some advection

On the corner, in the sun,
In the rain, or on the run:
Past the point of no return
Bled into tomorrow —

Days are long but years are brief;
As the gold fills up the leaf,
Only-ness cries out for rest
Swallowed up
In sorrow
