How are you?

24 Nov

I have a thousand brilliant lies

For the question:

How are you?

I have a thousand brilliand lies

For the question:

What is God?

If you  think that the Truth can be known

From words,

If you think that the Sun and the Ocean

Can pass through that tiny opening

Called the mouth,

O someone should start laughing!

Someone should start wildly Laughing –

Now!

if

if poem
were i
something other
than i
then i would
if
and but
and do and don’t
as if
i were
and is
and will
somewhere
somehow
be i
and subject
to and of
i
from here
nothing i
can will
or were
but going
gone i
beyond i
am i
and on
the wheel spins

falling into time

caught
falling into time
again
the wind
was sharp
and wild
and everything
was in
its place
and i
was somewhere
too
throughout
within
the twilight glare
sitting
waiting
dancing
there
falling
crawling
barking
beneath
the sanctuary
gates
and one by one
the passersby
done past
the lazy
crazy
river
knows
knows
no other
way

another grain infinite

another grain infinite
sprouting mystery
of breath
one
reve(a)ling
in being of beauty Of
grace.i
lightly
riverrun
and cloud.by
lovingly elemental
my tail, comet
of forever’s rainbows
life
diving
freeingly. i dissolve
