Marshall Gass Poems
To Find Yourself, Lose Yourself
inside the cavernous mystery
that exists within you.
Self-reflect and remain silent
as you course your own veins
savouring every spectacle
touching every muscle
strolling through platelets
and rbcs wbcs, nerve knots
and cortex malfunctions
kidney pies and testosterone inspired
stimuli surging mountains
spiralling into decaying depravity
until you arrive
at a conclusion of who you really are.
Look back at the millions of systems
that grind and churn your life into meaning.
Never ever forget that like you
billions of others ...
The Diary Notes
This early in the morning shrouded
by the negligee of night it feels
a bit silky silly to be working
awaiting for the dawn to push its way
into my strong coffee smell
tasks ahead. So many cups later
the light filters through the nets
and criss-crosses patterns of flowers
