Fantasy Number One


In the past I lived in another world.
My special purpose never unfurled.
I always answered to child, wife or mother.
Non-exclusive labels; I dreamed of another.

I want to thank this lofty Commission.
As I accept this prize from my new position,
Tonight I stand before you a poet.
And believe it or not
By God, I still don't know it.
