50th Anniversary Reunion

by Dan Close (Bekoji 66–68)

We can meet now as cadavers,
Whited sepulchers full of what we once began.
We had life to give.
We gave.
Are we no more, then?

Or, is this the new beginning?

Full of power and light,
Seasoned now in one another
And what we can affect
And how we now can change the world again
With pry-bars, levers, subtle permutations
Forged in the lives we lived,
The lessons we learned.
This, then, is happiness:
To know that we still live;
That we can still work miracles.
