Displacement



I speak for those who came before I
For they made I from what made they
To you I am them, to me you are they
And we are they to all others

Shall we be and be to each other?
Never! where or how?
Not here, for here is there
In silence I hear their words

I cannot speak for I
Thoughts are them
Words are them
Together, in forms which surround
Inside, outside, known and unknown

I exist apart from I
To whom I must return
