Quicksand II

QUICKSAND II

An explanation
Is only a theory
But with pretensions

On The Wagon

ON THE WAGON

Discard attachment
Loss a fizzy illusion
And sorrow sham pain

The Get-together

THE GET-TOGETHER

Meet your family.
Here is your brother Andyet;
Your sister Maybe.
Your cousin Alltheanswers’s
Not here yet. Her plane’s delayed.

Questionable Surroundings

QUESTIONABLE SURROUNDINGS

I wonder
Or at least at times
Do I live
In some hell
That I myself have dreamed up?
Shall I ever know?

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

Stage Four

STAGE FOUR

I love you
You’re forgetful now
With chemo
And all that
So I wrote it on paper
Hope you understand

The Me In Meaning (8b)

THE ME IN MEANING

Always seemed
Fairly subjective
What passes
For meaning
How and where we go seeking
Has its influence

Growth (4a)

GROWTH

In our youth
We would give ourselves
Foolishly
We admit
Only partially awake
Yet there’s more to it

For later
As we grew wiser
We became
Discerning
Let us be loved yet also
Explore our own core

Born To Lose

BORN TO LOSE

Try as we may we shall
Understand but a small
Portion of this Being
That which we embody

In Essence

IN ESSENCE

Nothing’s black or white;
‘t’s all mixed up. Nothing changes;
Just the skin colour.
