I have not really known myself,
or anyone else.

I've tried to do good, and not
just what my appetities wanted,

but that was all infatuation
with this precious, isolated, body.

That you and I were constantly joining,
I didn't know. I didn't know

that even to ask "What are You?"
or "Who am I" breaks the harmony.
