Essentially I need to
Re-establish my identity,
As you,
Who six weeks ago
Knew little of me, have
Energized me to such an
Extent that I want to live again;

To surround myself with
The everyday apparatus
Of an operator
Who knows exactly
What attracts him,
And in order to achieve it
Must submerge himself again

In the mundane waves
Of commerce and travel:
Driving licence
And passport torture;
Running the course of
Regular employment and
The toys it allows to be purchased.

And to make you feel like
The only lover ever needed,
Complete with as
Clear a picture of me
As there has ever been,
Or will be, cast upon this land
I once wandered unknown and lost.
