(for Jim Ryan)*
We come and go –
life trundles  on:
why must it be so?
The good the bad
the unspeakable
all  are  swept in tow

What the logos
where the reason(s)
conjuring trick
change  of  season(s)
Perfidious Nature
mocks our treason(s)?
For all our
vapid turpitude
we are yet withal
insanely good

In face of
of Fate
We lisp
parched praise
and propitiate
Devoid rancor,
rue, or hate
In Design
so stark perverse
we’re the wonder
of the universe
