Life Is A Bunch Of Short Stories 2013

Life Is A Bunch Of Short Stories

(after reading Mo Yan)

 

Life is:

A bunch of selections, connections

United by threads.

Backwards & forwards, assorted, arranged

Into some kind of order

Belonging to us.  Anomalous, strange

This unified something

Of feelings and dates

Reeling in all the fates by

Fixed bits of the lobes;

Hemispheres stirring the whole that it forms

That is life we call normal: no more than

A bunch of short stories.

 

Variation II

Life is a bunch of:

Connections, selections;

Backwards & forwards, assorted, arranged.

Some kind of order,

Anomalous, strange,

Under feelings and dates,

Fixed on amygdyla, frontal lobe,

Hypo… and hippo…

And all of their dealings;

Dealings of feelings

And what’s really poignant is

All that it forms

That is life

We call normal.
