  9197.     

Inside Your Great Self....

all she had to do was
write about a leaf, or a bird perching
one rainy upon a grain
of wheat,

voila! she is great
just like the way Picasso uses only two lines
to draw a breast of a feeding woman

how foolish can you be
searching for the golden ant with silver wings
trying to please them
with it

all toil, suffering yourself like
a Sisyphus,
you are still nothing
trying hard, copycat

forget about it, junk them
discover the great self within you

believe, Shakespeare is
a slave.

Insignificant

from among the sands on the shore i am but a single grain
of sand
insignificant
indistinguishable
in fact just like the rest i may just be
nothing

but if you really love me babes, as i have loved you
i will stand out from the rest of those billion grains
i am not a single grain anymore
i shall become

your sun your universe

Insignificant Links...

as we were talking
he arrived at the connection between the shoes
and poverty
and i was wondering what is the link of
that shoelace to
lack of meaning
we became silent until a man without shoes
came running
without reason for he lost his mind
when by his anger he murdered
his friend who borrowed his pair of shoes
and not returning
them

it is the experience that links us
to something that we think was insignificant at first

for instance he begins today with another
bewilderment
that piece of string and that
prison.

  9200.     

Insistence...

satyr sits upon a rock
and looks at me, there seems to be a problem
he says, i ask, what?
he says you are not that happy anymore
forgetting our place
and the things that you once teach us to do
now we want to teach you what you have forgotten
i am silent
i am changed i tell him

the sands of time have been slipping
too fast i point to him the horizon dimming like
a torch being put off by cold air

the sound of thunder cuts us
the rain comes and we lose sight of our mutual
insistence.
