It Will Happen To You 2010

It Will Happen To You

It happened yesterday

Moments of the dark night.

Mystics know about it.

Saint John of the Cross, Theresa,

Milarepa, Ramakrishna.

Meaninglessness, emptiness,

The psyche says depress.

It’s summer. All the best shows cease.

Isn’t that ridiculous?

Trigger:

Physiology?

Maybe. Partly. Hardly.

Deeper than the molecule in any case.

A thought that sees

Illusion, passing hollowness.

I didn’t cling

But let it go and mentioned it to Kent.

It went.

I seized upon ideas to glue

Myself to You,

Invisible as always.

But as usual –

The one remaining thing to do.

Once You’ve Had A Vision 2010

Once You’ve Had A Vision

It’s all of interest.

Once you had a vision

It’s all grist-for-the-mill

To grind and use at will.

In Our Time 2010

In Our Time

Daughters in-law

Cheerless in their marriages,

Are splitting up.

Miscarriages

Of marriages;

Barren women, men and children,

Humanity, civilization –

The world over.

What’s the answer?

What Is 2010

What Is

A point of light

And inside love.

Knowledge that we cannot know

And knowledge that we do.

What is

A thing whose energy itself is

Bliss – for us the height of happiness –

Peace and mercy –

Mercy even when the thing looks bad;

And power that is always made,

Can never end,

And light that’s conscious –

That’s the best – the consciousness.

It can’t be born.

It never is.

It cannot die.

It never does.

It doesn’t do

And yet

It is itself a giver,

Right down to its unexisting liver.

Who is what is who?

I do not know.

Incorporeal entitled to big I.

Not born, not dying,

Always pleased no matter what.

An ocean fountain streaming virtue,

I’ll go back to that.

It is the only thing that’s true.

Windy Morning 2010

Windy Morning

Leaves dancing,

Birch trunks slim,

A family communing,

Swaying synergistically.

Strong in their weakness,

They don’t break or crack.

They yield and give.

They live.

My powers of observation checked,

There is no sound indoors.

Was Neitzsche Right? 2010

Was Neitzsche Right?

Think bad, good, harmful, helpful and

We’ve reached a point where science can manipulate

The gene in cell.

We’re doing well, you’d think.

But there are hacker kids

In bedrooms – boys,

Manipulating DNA to tease the brain,

For fun and gain,

And scientists, the guys who know

But who, since human

House self-interest, greed and patience

(All the vices and the virtues)

Who can wait a long, long time.

Here’s a little germ, a cell,

Which some experimental nerd maneuvers,

Lo! Two darling tiny-saurs.

Cute! A sweet mutation,

And we’re off to reproduce and clone

Through evil, good and ignorance.

Off and running backwards

In a race to who survives.

One day somewhere, in untold years from there,

We knock them off.

A satellite well-bomb-equipped.

They’re gone. We’re here.

Dispersed, no wheels, no laboratory

(the whole world a lavatory)

Time to start again with myths

And memories and legends.

Time to start all over.

Hurrying 2010

Hurrying

All these –urryings.

Hurry-, scurry-, worrying.

The day is May, the kitchen step half-comfortable,

The coffee in my palm a satisfaction and

A prefix to the day at hand.

The only righteous thing to do

Is sit

And finish it.

A funny speckled fly beside me

(red and yellow eyes are funny)

Water-filled step indentation his own cup

Looks up,

Drinks too.

The point is to

Slow down.
