Each Of Us

EACH OF US

Upon his decease
They found, clearing out his things, this envelope
Addressed “To whom it may concern”

Each of us is a PLP
A Public Leaning Post
A Poor Lonely Person

As a Public Leaning Post
I give each of you help and acceptance
And this is my Love

As a Poor Lonely Person
I ask each of you for help and acceptance
And this is my Humility

Amidst the dark and stormy seas of my pain and passion
I cling to the raft of my heart
And this is my Integrity

Among the dark and silent hills of my inner landscape
I shout “Hello” and listen to my own voice’s dying echoes
And this is my Humanity

There is a time for speech, a time for action
A time for silence and stillness
And this is my Wisdom

And as I strive to honour each moment as it is
And hold these qualities in mind
Perhaps I approach Creativity

Pilate – Nuremberg – Obama

PILATE – NUREMBERG – OBAMA

What kind of defence is
“Just following orders”?
I hear you sold your arse
Hope you got a good price

Make It Real

MAKE IT REAL

Perform your own stunts
Those flashy camera tricks
No more than pyrite

Integrity

INTEGRITY

Fashion and custom,
belief and law,

come and go;
dissolve and evaporate.

Yet there is always
(however forgetful we become)

always, always,
two of us:

the actor …
and the observer;

and things work best
when we remain eye to eye

and hearken to
the primal

that feeds both heart
and soul;

tiller when we act,
anchor when we stand firm;

father and mother beyond this realm
and I your dutiful child.
