Before experience occurred
it rose as shadows in his mind
specters of becoming, images
not fully formed, some fears
otherís instincts, urges manifest
ahead of where he was, so much
overlooked in front, faces longing
that beckoned, his art reached
out to connect relations, fell short
overshot, the future ever in wait
as if to contemplate or anticipate.
