Original Poems

a distant cry

 i hear a seagull’s distant cry;
 it’s laden with a long distress —
 what is this thing, experience,
 and why does it breed loneliness?

 what is this moment, and this life?
 what kind of creatures, then, are we
 to feel such meaning in these sounds
 for which we have no translator

 or key?
