We Have Walked

Dedicated to Terry and Shirley Cox

We have walked in

shimmering places

in and both out of this world (and that other)

hand and fingers

deliberate in their embrace

as dragons, fiends and other degenerate souls

face us and are


by the sheer force of willing

Gradually now

i slip

more and evermore

into that other realm

full of thirst

for continual state

in this half-dreaming reality

pain does not live here

neither do you

i must

quit this tired struggle

bow to the understanding

time requires this adventure alone

rediscover and explore

that world of

shimmering places where we have walked
