August 25-27, 2018


he said something like

“… nobody talks about it

but everybody knows …”

I know now

but I didnt know when

he said that something

so he was wrong

everybody did not know

and he was right

because everybody knew

who either mattered or cared


it matters and doesnt really

and now that I know

I care and dont care either


this I do know


it matters

it is his only life

it is of utmost importance

that he live it well

but doesnt

it is his life alone

it is not an offense to me

that he live and fail


the bell may toll for he

that also tolls for me

but his death or life

are his alone to own


He Said Something Like
