Fantasia

Are you bigger in your absence

than your presence could command

 

Is your memory that much stronger

than your being when at hand

 

Does the legend of your fancy

stretch the truth of what you’d done

 

The imagined and embellished

—a false legacy becomes

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: August, 2020)
