The Last of the Wine"
9/15/2005 9:29:32 PM

Rod McKuen
Written and composed in Hydra, 1968

I lie here dying
in a hundred small ways
from voices crying
my name down nameless hallways
and the clock keeps ticking
eating up the time
and I'm down to the last of the wine.

My stomach growling at the movement
my hand makes
in reaching out toward
the disappearing handshapes.
Dreams come true, everyone's but mine
and I'm down to the last of the wine.

And I crawl on my belly through the night
and I dream of dying in the sunlight.
As unseen shadows
in the morning starts to harden
I rise ulp singing
to the angel in my garden.
Some dark and different
angel of another kind
and I'm down to the last of the wine.

And the angel never taught me to pray
and I die with the dying of the day.
things are often known to be felt in my soul on a level other than what it was intended... but as a poet you would know that it is all in the interpretation that matters the most to most of us no matter how any one thing was "intended"
