Questions About My Previous Writing

(for Isobel and Chris)

A number of questions to ask myself are –
was I irreverent in 1972;

did I write a collection then of poetry and prose,
and if so, how many rooms in unknown

houses did my book haunt their surrounds;
did my voice in this palpable project

beautify its derisions; would the voyeurs have
read with a sense of regret at their invasion

or had insights into the privacy of my candour,
and if this can be found in the here and now,

or even another Borgesian reality, is it too late
to publish once more and revive better times?
