should he would he could he…

should he would he could he escape 
then he upon the open sea
would breathe the air in ecstasy:
out past the dunes along the cape
in lonesome majesty.

and if and when and where and how
would be a vibrant nourished soul,
that’s more than salary, or role:
connected heart within a now
that’s less a part, and more

a whole
