AS ONCE WAS NOW (BEFORE)
by Eric Lee Baker

In your absence
I am free
to quiver in
your shadows' wake
absorbed in dance
upon the blue-white wall.

You are bigger than I am big
Here, against this wall,
splashed in color
black and white
as once was now, (before)

Yet in your presence, so was I,
apart from lines and lore
searching for the shades of rhyme -
as once was now (before)
