Beauty and Despair

The forest's lovely, dark and deep,
But I, unlovely human, have pale and
shallow promises to keep
to well-kept humans.
There is no gain but hurt
as we turn the planet called Earth
to the planet called Dirt,
the planet of pain.
And we are vanity & all in vain.

Every girl and every boy
is born with and robbed of
the secret of joy.
And not a thing will satisfy
Because we all are cut away
from our innate capacity
to be appropriate, attuned.

Poems
are pus from that terrible wound,
wound of wanting, dark and deep.
The woods are lovely…We explain
and turn experience to pain,
turn pain to planetary experience,
and we are vanity, and all in vain.
 
Anthony Weir

Bone to Bone (homage to Vasko Popa)

Apart from everyone
I listen to the crows
And admire the blood-red
Japanese Quince flowers in April

The long-tailed dancer
With Cyrillic teeth is laughing
While I practise howling

Which is poetry
 
Anthony Weir
   
 

   
   
 

  51.     

Challenging Emily Dickinson

Nature's red in tooth and claw
But we are black of heart.
There's more 'soul' in a jackal's paw
than all our works of art.
So I will kindly stop for Death
and do the gracious thing.
And with the gift of my last breath
transform to sweet
nothing.
 
Anthony Weir

CIDES

After
birth
for the affluent
is mostly
-cides: bactericides
insecticides
herbicides
rodenticides
but too rarely
spermicides
and all too rarely
suicide.
Thus almost all of us
are war-criminals.
