On My Birthday

Cover of Planet of the Blind....man and dog....

My twin brother died
Just after I was born
He got here first and looked around
I know we only get one chance
If I had Auden’s talent
I’d make this rhyme
Let’s walk in spring sunshine
Let’s wander upriver
Where water’s clear
If I could tell you I would let you know
Time will say nothing but I told you so
Love’s amusing, terribly fast
My brother looked—
And now he’s the upturned eyes of life in footprints
