Sneaking Senility

SNEAKING SENILITY

I didn’t forget
To do it but I forgot
That I had done it

Glass Upon Glass

GLASS UPON GLASS

One glass reflects
Another glass refracts
Another sends us spinning
Adrift in a hall of mirrors

And in the ashes … phoenix

Time To Check Your Watch

TIME TO CHECK YOUR WATCH

You
Sit
Amazed

Is it
Now
Yet?

Belt And Braces

BELT AND BRACES

Even when drifting
In a cloud of unknowing
It’s a good idea
To keep your wits about you
After all you never know

Lodestar

LODESTAR

It’s not just out there that there’s weather
There’s changeable weather here inside too
Heard tell they’re one and the same anyway
Beneath this sogenannten inside/outside slop
In which case all bets’re off or else ill judged
N this moment’s snap’s not the last’s or next’s
N any original thought’s worth no more than
What pads out a thousand mindless quotings

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

In The Groove

IN THE GROOVE

Erase old programs
They are no longer serving
Get out of the way

Timepiece

TIMEPIECE

I watch time tick by
Watching the watch watching
I pass the time

The watching eye sees
In being seen the scene seen
Meets the watching eye

Not The Real Thing

NOT THE REAL THING

Fearful egoistical manifestation
Engenders armorial inflation
Leads to superfluous titivation

Over time astute observation
Advises timely disintegration
For eventual emancipation

The Merry Dance

THE MERRY DANCE

Ah yes … Mindfulness
And her wayward twin sister
Distraction … Ah yes
