He loves every country but his own
and knows more about the plumbing in Ancient Rome
than what it would take to repair the pipes
under the sink in his house.

He has stood on the rim of Kilauea
and offered flowers to the volcano Goddess

He has been to Ulan Bator and back
yet he cannot summon the energy to telephone
or write to his old Scottish aunt
