Passages

 

(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
cruelty
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

 

*who lost his mother at 91
