HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU’RE ALIVE?

Just
how do you know
that you are alive?

How do you show others?
Do your eyes meet their eyes?

And,
just how do you get,
with regard to those who are dead,
the reasons for which
they no longer survive?

If you knew all these things,
I just have a feeling,
you’d be quite distinct
with an eye and a heart
quite incomparably wise.
