COUNT TEN
(FOR HAROLD PINTER)
Arnold Wesker

Count ten. Then
Count ten again.
That way is time measured
Death denied.
Each measures time
His own way--coffee breaks
Rejections, instalments
On the car.

Count blessings. Then
Count them again.
That way is heart fooled
Honed, toned down.
Each fools his shadow
Shadows his dreams
Stalking himself
In circles
In circles move shadows.

Count circles. Then
Count them again.
That way are trees, time
Honed expectations
Measured, laid out.
