  121.     

Point B To Point A

The Big Bang was
Not the beginning but the
End of

What had been, and in the eons since
Fragment by atomic fragment
A new universe arises out of the dust
What was past is present once

Again
Relatively speaking
As of matter, of course.


(Previously published in Pink Cadillac, Vol 3, #4, Fall 1999; The Scrivener's Pen, Vol.3, Issue 3,2003)

  122.     

Progress

We
Westernized thinkers, strive in the noblest
Airs of our endeavors
To make this a better world, but
We don’t see the world is already
Perfect as it is, without the intrusion
...of Man

We
Corrupt and destroy, pollute
Contaminate, use
Our mass consumption, the slow
Devouring of our own
Souls
Still believing in the shame of

Our
Nakedness, apples left uneaten on
Sour trees, never ripe enough
To be picked.



(Previously published in PRIVATE International Review, No.38, Sept 2006)

  123.     

Sad Sacked

He was a weird fellow

Sat around reading books when he
Should have been working
Well, at least
LOOKING like he was working
Not that there’s all that much
Work to do really
But it’s important to our customers
That we always look like we’re working
It gives them confidence
That they’re dealing with good, honest
Americans
Not a bunch of idiots who sit around

Reading books.

  124.     

Safer To Ignore

People are frightened
By the reach and touch of a

Stranger

Intimate moments so
Perilous

In the fragmented
Divide of humanity.


(Previously published in Pencil Stubs, May 2003)
