Insight From Jacques Ellul

In fourth grade Grandma Grace gave me
What theologian Ellul would call
The primary symbol of modern man
A watch currently succeeded by the cell phone
To keep us safe in the bondage of chronos
Till kairos can lure us to the rescue of our days.

Instruction to a Future Poet #1

Always carry paper – pen – pencil
Or comfortable electronic equivalent
In the year 2013
Oxford “Stone Paper” is recommended
The purpose is
To be able to respond to inspiration,
You do not know
Where or when or how
It will come.
A paper that resists
Moisture
May be the inspiration
To capture a world

Iron Men

Tito was an iron man
Sadam was one too.
Given the post partum
Fractures we have seen
It is best that we respect
Machiavelli's ancient wisdom
That is sustained,
That in matters of state
It is better a prince be feared than loved,
Despite the unofficial rose
Observed on Frederick's grave.

It Does Not Matter

It does not matter if I leave a comment for Sharon Olds
This poet who takes breath from me
Her greatness is secure.
She requires no adulation.
She requires no crowd.
In heaven if I am lucky, perhaps I will be allowed to sit at her table
Listen to her conversation with my betters and learn.
Always the freshman learning from my betters, even in heaven.
 
Bill Grace
