A Small Part

….Many summers later I’d learn to love

the shadows illumination creates.

 

But experience always occurs too late

to undo what’s been done. The hint

of moon above an unpredictable sea,

 

and that young man, that poor me,

staring ahead– everything is as it was.

And of course has been changed.

I got over it. I’ve never been the same.          –Stephen Dunn
