Night Gathering



I don't expect you to understand. 

It's not your fault.

You got no frame of reference.


That's my first reaction. 


But looking at it, I see that it's wrong. Of course you have a frame of reference. Of course you understand. It just means something else to me than it does to you. Because of my frame of reference. 

I have been changed by things.

The change has been wrought.


I shall endeavor to cease my squawking about it. But my god.


One thing I know is that whatever else is going on here, I am writing and working for myself. I am the beneficiary of my works. Sometimes I am writing for myself in the darkness of some cold and future night, that there might be some warmth, a scrap of blanket and a piece of bread.

Here you go, friend.
