Back Next Unfinished Business

Unfinished business:
must something be said or done
torn up thrown out
or mended and redeemed?
the bind
I got myself in
Is having fed you gold
you have taken this cake
and escaped to the sunshine of truth
and here I am left
in the rainstorms
of feeding hungry birds
who can not pay
and sometimes will not eat.

Irwin R. Shaw - October 24th 1983
