Hands Free And Spinning

HANDS FREE AND SPINNING

Once we recognise
That we have
No reliable knowledge
Of our future
Beyond conjecture
Nor any absolute control of it
We can only be left with uncertainty.

Of course it is more comfortable
Not to dwell on these truths too much though.

Lest We Forget: Tanka

LEST WE FORGET

No evil people
Only very messed up ones
A part of ourselves
We often forget that though
And hold my hand up also

Formernesses Recalled

FORMERNESSES RECALLED

“Is it up?” she wantonly cried
I knew not how and yet
For lost were we in that
Conjecture manifest

… Untongued

… Momentarily

… Eternally

I knew not how and yet
Still know not yet
In retrospect

Grasping at straws as I may
As any of us ever may
This camel’s broken back
Added to the score

Adieu
Godspeed

The Real

THE REAL

Simply cloud castles
While who is out or in there
To decide The Real?

The Misdirection

THE MISDIRECTION

There is what we knew
And there is what we were taught
They are not the same

Who

WHO

Who knew that there is
No one there to understand
That you understand?

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?
