The Last Scholar




half-buried in the sand 
at the bottom of the sea
at the end of the world

Life Outside


just a heartbeat away
pressing against the window
when the breeze drives it
calling you to join
the green dance
before the music changes
and the party ends

Paraplegic


but inanimate
and therefore
not an object 
of vicarious curiosity

only occasional
bemusement
mostly left to their own devices
of being in disuse
