    And now what

    Me up at dawn
    in the silence

    feet on floor
    I stare
    at windowed ocean

    a nested bird

    nearby

    asks me, "What
    have you done that

    I wouldn't have?"

    This piece sent me to the "Google" machine to look up the poet who only used adding machine paper to keep his lines short. I couldn't remember his name, but it was (and is) A.R. Ammons. In any event the lines here (as well as your earlier posts) reminded me of this award-winning writer's M.O.

    And as I read that last line the confessions come pouring. So much, what of humanity is natural.

    Yes. Confessional writing is perhaps the best natural reservoir of writing. Hell, all art is self-portraiture, in some form.
