Take Time

TAKE TIME

Intimate stranger
Unknown friend
Stop dead
Take time
Take time

Look around
Out there
In here
Reflect … consider
Your input

After that
Consider this
This day
May be
Your last

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

Terminal

TERMINAL

The conductor cries out
“End of the line! All change!”
Passengers wake up
Look round for their possessions
But no pockets in a shroud

Quote Of The Day 2

“Some people think they can find satisfaction in good food, fine clothes, lively music, and sexual pleasure. However, when they have all these things, they are not satisfied. They realize happiness is not simply having their material needs met. Thus, society has set up a system of rewards that go beyond material goods. These include titles, social recognition, status, and political power, all wrapped up in a package called self-fulfillment. Attracted by these prizes and goaded on by social pressure, people spend their short lives tiring body and mind to chase after these goals. Perhaps this gives them the feeling that they have achieved something in their lives, but in reality they have sacrificed a lot in life. They can no longer see, hear, act, feel, or think from their hearts. Everything they do is dictated by whether it can get them social gains. In the end, they’ve spent their lives following other people’s demands and never lived a life of their own. How different is this from the life of a slave or a prisoner?”

Mirrors (A Four By Six)

MIRRORS

Everything collapses
Global, societal
And private, personal
As above, so below

Slip-sliding away
Those lyrics we memorised
Winter of our days

Waiting Room

WAITING ROOM

Set yourself
To examining
The texture
Of the fabric
Of your life
Between meals

Relativity II

RELATIVITY II

Hurtling down the track
Sat here in this racing train
I seem to be still

Family

FAMILY

They were both upfucked
It was nothing personal
Still I’m upfucked too

A Judgement On Judgement

A JUDGEMENT ON JUDGEMENT

What shall we make of our life?

A worldwide sightseeing tour
Or else a fault-finding mission?

For we shall never find a fault
Beyond those t’was we defined?
