April 1973

somewhere in my hand i broke the flower. it withered and went away . . . i will write no more poems, for they tell me poets are sad people inside. i will climb no more mountains, shoot no more seagulls, dream no more beautiful dreams. i will ride my bicycle and wear blue jeans and eat red apples.

i’m going home. my brother will know who i am.
