Thinking Clearly

 

I’m simply trying

To think clearly,

Times and destiny against me.

 

Not alone, it is we all.

A world of digits and addictions,

New temptations:

‘Lead me not into temptation…’.

 

Tiny hippocampus shrinking even more than ever,

It’s an effort,

I admit.

A part of words, a part of worlds

Inside a frame that gilds the lily,

Curls around reality

Like smoke from chimney.

 

Headlines chronically bad,

Chronicles of planetary sadness –

World of digits,

World on fire,

World that cultivates desire,

It is all the harder to think clearly

And sincerely:

Ergo, I

Am trying as a consequence,

To change the sequence

And think plainly, deeply,

Patently, indubitably

Clearly.
