Imagining Peter

Imagining Peter

“sometimes you sway
back into the wood”
—J. M. Barrie
“A Dedication,”
Peter Pan

Sometimes a story—
Isn’t a path leading back
To a familiar place

Sometimes one finds—
Oneself back there again
Deep in Neverland

Could I do it again—
Finding the right words
For the Lost Boys again?

My poor bloodshot eyes—
Incarnadine as Peter Pan
Makes love to me?
