Either Alzheimer's or the Lightning Bolt

cruising The Moment,
arrowing past all awareness:
highway,enginewhiine,steeringwheeltrafficWorldsmudginnnnngg past
while we, preoccupied, reprise Creation,
absorb Eternity and Logos, Eden/Gethsemane, Genesis-Apocalypse
and the Night the Night,
the private bleeding into the general,
and Ouruniverse proxying for ego.
Glorious cosmic fusion in an infinite minute.

             (or so it briefly eternally seems in our infinitiny microverse)

The ends of love
are but two

:your V8 plunges from the surface
and, crucified like a butterfly in time,
helpless consciousness heightened,
you hover in slowmotion witness
to the juggernaut earth’s decay
just as your metal-again grille
begins to embrace solidity

or: doomed foresight eludes
as you rearend that lightless

  1. Alzheimer ou la detonation de foudre

    naviguant le Moment
    et sagettant devant toute la conscience
    la ruee. le fremisssssement du moteur, le volant qui tache le traffffic du Monde
    et nous on repete la Creation
    absorbant l'Eternite et le Logos, l'Eden/le Gethsemani et la Nuit la Nuit
    le saigmement prive dans le general et notre Univers qui appelle l'ego

    (ou donc me semble brievement)

    Les fins d'amour
    ne sont que deux

    :ton moteur V8 plonge de la surface
    et, crucife comme un papillon a temps,
    avec la conscience impuissante et intensifee,
    tu planes lentement
    temoin a la chute de la terre dans le jugernaut

    et ton grillage de metal de nouveau
    commence a embrasser la solidite

    ou: la prevoyance condemnee echappe
    come tu as souleve ce noir-la
    a demi
