Versione :

The naked truth - I am alone

The naked truth - I am alone.
Reality staked out by solitude:
since no one else could be exuding me,
the singular face touch must be my own.
I am alone, and am pursued
by the illusion of that isolated home
where I am shut up in a sharply delimited zone,
tangled in nets I don't elude.
While I gird myself in cetitude,
affliction subdues me constant
in this being wholly immewed
in some struggle and never at any instant
being outside my ambit. O fierce-fought human servitude
within a shell both frail and incandescent.
