February 7, 2000


its more difficult in the evening

as I sit alone among you

whom I have long served

confused that none realize the pain

at the sudden loss

of what I had been born to do

seeing some strange new

avoidance in your eyes


no longer a teacher among you

I find communion hard

more than any time before

I need you, where are you?
