neither owner nor lender

i cry sometimes,
i see your old and tired frame,
and i see the years
that lie ahead of me,
and my name.

sometimes i look for it,
seek it out,
the place to let it rise
up inside me, and
just as the diver dies,
if he does not
reach it in time,
then so will i.

i cry out loud,
and let it paint the walls,
and the floors
and the windows and doors,
let it wash up on
all the distant long forgotten shores.

just a body,
that is all,
just an anchor for a soul
that is all,

you make only yourself
my goal.

i cry oftentimes
as the world turns,
and when i learn i am not
anything at all
neither owner nor lender.

neither owner nor lender
