“It isnt for want” by Cid Corman

Cid-Corman-vertical-clipIt isnt for want
of something to say –
something to tell you –

something you should know –
but to detain you –
keep you from going –

feeling myself here
as long as you are –
as long as you are.

Listen to Cid Corman recite this poem, urgently and powerfully, shortly before his death.
