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 speed with which it funnels into the sky
sucking down to earth the torrents
that reached heaven
through oceans, mountains of majesty
and mists of mystery
now tearing down like a scythe
cutting pathways through manicured towns
and always aiming for stadiums of gathered people
the storm presses its anger
