  45.     

A la Recherche de Paul Verlaine

Miserable wars
if love is not the reason
Miserable wars

Miserable weapons
if they are not kisses
Miserable

Pitiable men
if they don't die of love
Pitiable

Men have killed
more women than men

The most miserable love
is fought for
The most pitiable kisses are weapons
and the most pathetic men
refuse to live for love without motive.
 
Anthony Weir
   
 

   
   
 

  46.     

A Mound of Refuse

Even the poor in our society
have six times more
than it's sane to desire

And the rich everywhere
always
are wanting something for nothing.
 
Anthony Weir
   
 

   
   
 

  47.     

About Wisdom

O wisdom - enchanter - was I greedy for fame?
Did I lie and deceive to gain reputation
as your greatest servant?

Did I stoop to currying favour with worthless
people of position and power?
Did I worry about status or money?

For those who wish to retain their integrity
the only place to be is under your feet
and whether we wash or not, walk clothed or naked,
live or die,
is of utmost irrelevance.


2. AFTER A POEM ENTITLED 'SLAVE BOY'
by Yusuf ibn Harun al-Ramadi (died 1022 CE)

They shaved his head
to make him unattractive,
for his beauty made them
mean.

They wiped out the night.
They abandoned him to dawn.
 
Anthony Weir
   
 

   
   
 

  48.     

All Souls Day, Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val

Here in the graveyard
the rotting corpses lie.
Children depress me.
But it cheers me up to know
that I and they will die.
 
Anthony Weir
