notes on hope and redemption: #16 – show and tell

Poem #40 from a second series of meditations titled: the Pilgrim (2)

Back to the Pilgrim – Introduction


it is only those who survive
pilgrim
who are able to tell their tales

enlarged as they are
by the distortion and extremity
of experience

the dead
communicate in more limited ways
through posture
and rictus

for them it is necessary
to show
