  49.     

Eight Shorts

There are now more people
living on the earth than ever died
- though man is the only creature capable of suicide.

*

The greatest mystery
of life for me is not its origin
nor end nor meaning
but people's relentless superficiality.

*

The people who waste the most water
are those who most complain
about rain.
(Taps drip unfixed throughout
vast regions of unceasing drought.)

*

In my Auschwitz
head are five nice Nazis,
four Jewish war-criminals,
three bestial anarchists,
a Jehovah's Witness
and six far-seeing
(and very sexy) Gypsies.

*

What 'Good Sex' Tells Us:
time
is
nothing.

*

The Past:
invented
then lived in

(as far as is convenient) .

*

America:
the paranoid, collective
loneliness of greed.

*

In Nation States
the breadth of human
(and therefore animal)
experience decreases day by day.
And so we blaze our way.

Ek Stasis

In the soulzone
Conscious in the
Ancient armpit
Of the Unconscious
At every moment
And the beginning
And the end of time
Any tree is more wonderful
Than any work of art
And all that matters
Is awareness
That nothing matters

And fulfilment is
To fall apart.
 
Anthony Weir
   
 

   
   
 

  51.     

Emigrant

Entering the sphere of enterprise and hope
he sees unceasing energy
trapped in the rat-race
helplessly.

  52.     

Epiphany: Eochu, Lord of the Underworld

Barrel
Slung between powerful thighs
Marvel
Fixing my humble and envious eyes
Slides out of its stock
Veins standing out, thick
As a man’s arm:
Authority
Long and splendid and black
Extends towards the ground
Then with a masterful flick
Slaps a taut belly
Swings down again
And slowly slips back
Into thigh-portal
Leaving me trembling and awed
By unconscious display
Of superhumanity.
 
Anthony Weir
