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

And Then (8a)

AND THEN

Autumn leaves
As Winter arrives
Seems only
Yesterday
Leaves remained firmly attached
As we cling to life

Common Sense

COMMON SENSE

To make soup is good
One’s bladder is more urgent
Each to its own time

Lady-in-waiting

LADY-IN-WAITING

While Whence births Whither
Meanwhile the mute bystander
Awaits her future

Good To See You, Bud

GOOD TO SEE YOU, BUD

One thing leads to another
Links in an ongoing chain
A necklace to adorn our Mother
Here comes Summer again and again

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

Two I’s Had I

TWO I’S HAD I

One vanished
Banished
Into memory

T’other survived
Lived
To tell our tale

Time To Check Your Watch

TIME TO CHECK YOUR WATCH

You
Sit
Amazed

Is it
Now
Yet?

Seasoned Just So

SEASONED JUST SO

Spring waters flow forth
Now after Now after Now
Summer, Autumn, Wint…

Second Hand Roses

SECOND HAND ROSES

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