this morning

 

This morning

I felt strong and jaunty in my

mail order Israeli commando trousers.

Up at Hard Luck Ranch I spoke to the ravens

in baritone, fed the cats with manly gestures. Acacia

thorns can’t penetrate these mighty pants, then

out by the corral the infant pup began to

weep, abandoned. In an instant

I became another of the

Earth’s billion sad

mothers.

lightning

strikes up out of the earth

stunning the air with sound     the sun falls

flaming into the sea     bright cracks

open in the burning clouds     the sky is broken

this is the season of separation     crossed

and crossing paths

the way is a path for one

If you wish 

to enjoy the fruits 

of enlightenment, abandon 

regard for the conventional and 

the communal. The Way is a path 

for one. Then it narrows 

until there’s not even 

space for you 

anymore.
