Meaninglessness’ Fullness 2008

         Meaninglessness’ Fullness

Beauty everywhere.


I see it in my aging girlfriends’

Lips, hair, mascara-ed eye,

A kilo lost or gained;

New bit of jewelry.

I see, I see.

The little beauty.

In the forest (where I live)

The fallen tree,

The taken ‘way,

The dead revealing a new ray

Of light,

New chance

To see the lake that’s usually



My alcoholic friend rings everyday

And sings me songs;

(An excellent, former, rather famous

Bassist; agoraphobic, life in ruins,

Helpless in the everyday,

Yet gentle, funny.

Though he might die any day,

The small songs show his beauty

In the meaninglessness.
