“In the end one experiences only oneself.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

the old sage asks as he dies:
who has my vision

—my essential mysteries—

this blind donkey braying

my words off-key?

or the old drunk poet

who renamed himself—

the dream bordello—

then night after night 

thirsted for more than water?
