1967 Ghazal

I was born free, and easy, gentle on my mind.

nineteen sixty seven was a different time.

 

now, nothing is left, but to simply exist.

being one from some time, I incorporate this.

 

strange, how a culture can shock to the core.

itself is itself, of itself, it endures.

 

time slips away one second at a time.

the past holds on fast, to the mind, as a sign.

 

one half of that life, I could not resist.

nineteen sixty seven was a different zeitgeist.

 

born free, and easy, is mental in the mind.

nineteen sixty seven was a difficult time.
