In the distance

I’ve been listening
to
Joplin and Cohen,
sad
knowing they’re gone,
but
if we do live on in the
words of the song
all
is not lost.

Everywhere I have ever been
everything I’ve ever known,
seen or shown is
a part of me,

lyrically composed?
only
God knows
and
he’s
keeping quiet
tonight.
