Who is now reading this?

Maybe one is now reading this who knows some wrong-doing of my past life,

Or maybe a stranger is reading this who has secretly loved me,

Or maybe one who meets all my grand assumptions and egotisms with derision,

Or maybe one who is puzzled at me.

 

As if I were not puzzled at myself!

Or as if I never deride myself! (O conscience-struck! O self-convicted!)

Or as if I do not secretly love strangers! (O tenderly, a long time, and never avow it;)

Or as if I did not see, perfectly well, interior in myself, the stuff of wrong-doing,

Or as if it could cease transpiring from me until it must cease.
