The Light of a Thousand Moons

by Perry L. Powell 

I am what I am.
Like you, I have my complaints
and more confusions
than a small skull should hold.

There may be pearls here
but pillars elude me.
This is no age for builders;
they tell me swimmers only need apply.

A doctor and nurse,
sex on the surgical table
in the dim of night...
What can they say to the dying?

Since we are all dying…

I am what I am. 
You are what you are. And there
are peacocks in Wisconsin.
