we were brothers once
years ago
not by mother
or father
but brothers in arms
not atomic
or nuclear
but in the arms of him
that spiritual giant
who used to smile down on us
until we looked away
and went our separate ways
from each other
not from him
you can only run so far
from infinity
and eternity
and a love which
if you sneak off into a dark corner
you can still hear
just barely whispering
or maybe those are just the voices
of madness
and maybe we were always crazy
but brother
whatever we were
whatever we are
and whatever we will finally be
you will be missed
keep on raising hell in heaven
if there is such a thing
