His life was spread across the map
universal integral, conversations
filled his head, radio central
prior lives spoke from books
music scores, paths walked before
wonder limitless in faces met
embraced, printed on his soul
full tide, boisterous shores fell
crashing swells, storms at sea
over flowed the beach, crazy
out of reach, struggling to contend
ordered, as he could, with his pen.
