                  How harsh their games
                    they play with idenity
                       trust and stress
                          like some play chess.

                  And how easily I'm caught
                    and begin to examine
                       my moves and defenses
                          and guard my thoughts.

                     Its so hard to know
                       as I push love away
                          so many wait to hold her.

                     My pain and my jealousy
                       walk hand in hand
                          behind damp eyes.

                     And I think
                       she'll be a treasure
                          to someone who needs her.

                     And I'll remember it a thousand times
                       when I'm needing her
                          and she's gone.

                     And then I'll wait alone
                       for my need to pass
                          praying for my will to last.

1975-03-?? The Big Apple

Saturday, March 1st, 1975
                          The Big Apple

         I am evolution come to consciousness
           with just enough awareness to see my purpose, sometimes,
         though all that I am and how I came to be
           is still far beyond me.

         We've only so recently seen evolution's pattern
           emerge from the darkness of our ignorance
         that the very breadth and span of it
           causes us yet to doubt it.

         To doubt that evolution has truly
           been given over to the evolved.
         But, the very consequences of our ignorance
           now bears down on us, and in direct proportion,
         to that knowledge, for which we're responsable,
           simply by knowing it.
