Overview II

OVERVIEW II

Time an illusion
A tapestry unrolling
Fresh? …Well … yes and no

On The Wagon

ON THE WAGON

Discard attachment
Loss a fizzy illusion
And sorrow sham pain

The Cage

THE CAGE

The days shorten while the nights lengthen
Then the nights shorten while the days lengthen
Then the days shorten while the nights lengthen
Then the nights shorten while the days lengthen

Setting up some kind of zero point or other
Measuring, counting, recording year by year
Offers us the pale illusion of understanding
The option of conjuring up some kind of god
Who created all of this in seven days (or not
Depending on your own preferred conjuration)
Meanwhile – or meaninglesslywhile – god forbid

The days shorten while the nights lengthen
Then the nights shorten while the days lengthen
Then the days shorten while the nights lengthen
Then the nights shorten while the days lengthen

Paradigm Paradox

PARADIGM PARADOX

Up where we truly live
Time and space are phantoms
What we do; what we say
Already history

Viewpoint

VIEWPOINT

Standing in the moment.
Was it the world moving?
The planet revolving?
Stillness an illusion?

Far From Home

FAR FROM HOME

Racist illusions
There is no one to defend
Painful foolishness

Right Not Right At All

RIGHT NOT RIGHT AT ALL

Conservatism
is at best
a mild form of
mental disturbance.
The further
to the right
the more
troubling
the symptoms.

Second Hand Roses

SECOND HAND ROSES

Elsewhere they tell us
Now has already happened
And is in the past

Making Art

MAKING ART

Everything breathes
As if but as a fiction
As is even a notion of time

For all this roaring
This Trumpetting horrorscope
Is in Truth both quite illusory
And also long long past
Long fixed in sticky time while

Fixed as the Mona Lisa
I step back to reflect
Or else lose myself

In my imaginings
Of the meaning
Of her smile while
While death creeps
On tiptoes nearer

Oh Media Mania’s Puny Hum

OH MEDIA MANIA’S PUNY HUM

Illusion within
Illusion masquerading
As reality
I interrupt this broadcast
With breaking news of silence
