Introduction

I have a rather mundane tale
to tell just like the rest,
but I feel as if in sifting
through my story I will find all
the elements of glory and disaster
really…

*

Do you know what it feels like,
burning and chills?

*

I hear Daddy crying out in the night, Mommy,
but it isn’t with you. Somebody else creeps in–
while you’re gone.

*

Who says that nothing is immortal?

Death is immortal, outlasting even the best of us.

*

…glory and disaster, and joy and sorrow,
so that in the end the mundane is made
extraordinary.
