from “Back on Earth”
Thirteen look out be well do that at least for whatever has hap- pened Thy no longer shall glimpse things great- er you say you aren’t safe well, no you’re not for- get your aims, your other loves no one can know what thought was for what adva- ntage it gave when time was young & speech a distant dream back on earth
