The Soul, Perhaps, Is Stronger?

1969 / Revised 1990

I, having lived my life as I have, and…
having spent it with those, who…
I, being human
think a lot and a little of – respectively.

Called, as described in the Book of Life –

The book of life being the dictionary,
and friends, per se, a numbered page

Except for those who
stand out among all
as being a part

This category, both small and varied
contains in it those things which
mean very little to the other
walking, breathing creatures of flesh around me.

And, in this portion I find that
I, marvel of creation, can,
make a Somebody out of the surging masses
Faces – all NOBODYS.
