Obviously, song came before speech
and moans came before song.
Whales sing refrains and antiphons,
compose sonatas.

Darwin thought that certain fish designed their own eyes;
researchers report that the planet's remaining fish not only
like but can also recognise
the less-commercial human music.

[Perhaps a line here ending with 'status'...]
[Perhaps a line here ending with 'God'...]
I both fear and pity people who think they are better than cod
Anthony Weir



'The scent of these armpits is an aroma finer than Prayer' (Walt Whitman)

I dreamed.
I woke in tenderness.
I dreamed of tenderness
as a ripe plum squirting
down my beard tenderness
that turned to tide
which flowed through both of us
and in which we floated
through our cuddle-space
wherein our snug adhesion
the unseen ballet of our tongues
the breath shared by each other's lungs
were part of an epiphanic lace
of delicate and gorgeous things
that we in sacred, shared
humility presented to each other
as sweet kings
and the smiling
exuberantly-bearded sun
was his
life-giving face.
Anthony Weir




It's not that images are powerful
but that consciousness -
already cursed by narrative - is weak:
everybody watches, mimics.
No-one sees.

We are all distorted
unreadable reflections of each other.

In this globalisation
hypocrisy like prurience
is a vast equaliser
making us all moral latrines
horribly disguised as clinics.
Anthony Weir



A Cold Eye

Wisdom is awareness
of the futility of communication
and the prodigality of the
communication of futility:
Wisdom is bareness.

Books are dead trees
and marketing and choked drains,
and poems are dead cells
from dying brains,

through whose intent, intention,
the vivid randomness of life and nature
has been turned to death
by planned inequity and inequality.
Anthony Weir
