Christopher's a quiet, sheltered pool
Hidden well within a garden wall.
Remembrances of fragmentary bliss
Inspire him to seek the source of peace.
Silently he meditates, while leading
The exemplary suburban life, receding
Oddly into happiness. His lease
Passes like a slow, distracted kiss.
He discovers nothing. He finds no source at all.
Each day is ground and polished like a jewel.
Regarding life, Christopher's no fool.
