Earthly Logic

Today and tomorrow

Too quickly

Slip into yesterday,

The theory

All is now

Slowly overrun

By earthly logic,

No matter

How sweet the equation

To justify the theorist’s

Imagination.

Time

If there is no time

Why do we become

Shells of ourselves,

Why is there a dawn,

A sunset,

If there is no time

Why is the line

Between birth and death

So short,

Why does the cuckoo

Report

Every half and on the hour.

Hiding The Moon

Who knows

What blows in the wind

At night,

Flows through minds

In the dark

When the clouds

Are hiding the moon,

Who knows

What creeps from corners

Peeps over the sill

Licks its lips

Plants nasty deeds

Near the weeds in the garden,

At night

When the clouds

Are hiding the moon.
