And Nothing Will Ever Be That Hasn't Been

This is all the life there is.
There are no comparisons.
There never was another,
Never will be another.

The sunlight on lined paper
Illuminates the spider
Of a handwritten idea.

There's only this life or else
Nothing, and all that I know
Of nothing is forgetting,
Surgery, and nightly sleep.

Life's the sum total of life
And there's no trading it in.
I am just what I have been.
