Untitled #111

This poem originally appeared circa 2000 in “12 Poems At The Dawn Of A Brand New Day”, one of my 9 self-published poetry chapbooks.  It was formerly titled #12:

I said goodbye to myself
quite some time ago
without even really knowing
without even realizing I had gone
I stood at the threshold
and said my farewells
to the pain I coddled and pampered
like a child, my lifeline
my dark, warm hearth
I tasted the dirt that had buried me
and savored it like the last crumb of bread
then laid the ancient child to rest
I said goodbye to myself
I walked through the door
and said hello

    There are few truly significant thresholds in one’s life, so it is good to acknowledge them properly.
