Hugh MacDonald

"Likely though,
should we awake
we would find ourselves
ruefully alone
our passage spent
our vessels burned
longing still for
that other ending
lonely islands
whose yearning
loops the generations
locked in purblind
hearts and minds
thoughts and
dreams of thought
- nothing more."

--- "Lonely Island", from Cold Against The Heart
