November 22nd 55 years after John F. Kennedy was killed in Dallas, Texas
Oh the day of thanks is tainted with the stain of JFK.
We who were witness now mourn the day as if it were now
time the illusive glass remains the glass darkly through which we strain to
see the three times—past present future.
it is now and forever all wrapped up in our cloak
a kind of cover where in we write our biography.
yes it was
and so is was
a kind of now and forever.
but we too die in time
and leave the print
as we tread toward the dark light
of our good night.
can we sleep and dream
at the same time
or are we fixed forever
with eyes wide open.
