ANACHRONISM (assigned V5)

Not conversant with the words between 

The lines that make men great

Faced with my own identity, unseen,

In the mirror's counterweight,


A dust storm on a foreign sun,

Obscure love and hopeless notes, 

Comfortable with palms and birds


At least including Mozart's


Up and dressed each day by three,

Countering rudimentary swimwear:

This admittedly is me;

Or alternatively, who?


An explorer under house arrest,

An astronomer before the moon,

A dying letter unaddressed,

Love without an afternoon
