Child And Dead Going Back

child and dead going back
meet midstreet
there is no recognition

the child carried anger
sacred a pot of fire

trying to see
the lights and places he knew

one too fiercely shy
and the other ashamed

cross careless as
sticks pitched for burning

could the child have denied
the casual callous acknowledgment
of an omen?

the child going forth did not know

- 1967 (?)
