On life and its vagaries


with 4 comments



 After going through a few serious works

And after reading a thousand limpid words

I start to think of the terrible worthlessness of it all


Whether those words luster or not

They all seem to be  heavy with thought

They all try to teach me how to live

How to think, how to laugh, and the like


And I am now so completely bemused that

I am thinking of mass materialization as a serious option

For, how can I practice all that they preach

With this single and hapless life I have?


Where the Roads Merge

 Down the road there’s something nice

A brainsick one is helping someone across

The old lady  is saying something to him

And the kid is muttering to himself

Both seem happy with the exchange

And both easily desert  the other on the far side,

Slowly limping off -following  their separate ends


I am not watching it, possibly,

Who is watching  it then?

In  conversations with………

 The Atheist

 “My God, how can

You believe in God?”

And  The Believer

 “ I hate it when

They say

There’s no Love”
