Perpetual Loss

Being Jewish means to sense
perpetually the loss
of a utopia in past tense
that, like an albatross,
hangs round Jews’ necks like dreams
of future futile gains,
imaginary as the schemes
to break all present chains.

Inspired by a line in the play “Photograph 51” by Anna Ziegler, currently showing at the FDountain Theater in LA, starring Aria Alpert as Rosalind Franklin, who at King’s College, London was the first person to demonstrate by means of Xray crystallography the double helix structure of DNA, inspiring the paper of James Watson and Francis Crick that on them the Nobel Prize together with Maurice Wilkins, Franklin’s colleague. Franklin has a Jewish friend, Caspar, who works at Yale and in the play declares: “Being Jewish means perpetual loss.”

The Loss Of Losing

The loss of losing,
Can be devastating.

How we react,
Can be worse.

Wrap ourselves in a lined cocoon,
Of a depressing clot.

A metamorphose of renewed life,
Is a difficult chrysalis to break.

Hiding here won’t give resilients,
To overcome the loss.

A Weight Loss Plan

Stepped on the scale,
I start to wail,
Have I eaten a great big whale?
Is there really a Holy Grail?
Weight loss is no plain sail.
But I need to know the facts,
make headway, make some tracks.
A weight loss plan, I would want
Get into gear, because I can....but when?

Your Loss Is Your Gain

Nothing is forever - Remember that! Any relationship you form - is very temporary. Full stop.

How I admire those who know instinctively when to walk away.
If we are to relinquish the past we must cut ties with it completely. Only then can we move on. Agreed?

Initially, you'll love yourself so much that you'll allow grief to overwhelm you Then, gradually - you'll stop feeling quite so sorry for yourself - and, you'll begin to accept your loss.
It may look easier on paper than it really is. But, if you genuinely want to let go - you will.

That loss is eventually your gain - and, very liberating.
By focusing on one person your horizons may have become narrow and limited

Get a grip
Forget any thought of hindsight or regret
And get on with your life.
