Satori with Alice

Words why is it,
I want to tear
your meaning off!
move up against you?

Get my mouth into there,

As Good's skin is fully
drawn to slip on,

But once again it's all but feint,
before it gradually disappears...

Or what I think I know,
and lost in the mediocrity,
I go -

And treasure is a chest
always about to become
more empty!

Of the true thing
we're hell bent on digging for -


But your not as pearly white
it seems,

And always looking at us
with some obscene guarantee,
to shake that whole instruction out,

Satori with Alice...
Satori a fallacy?

A dance through the circle mind
of chance...

Where everyone dreams, it seems,

in that dorsal moment, then back under -

'A ripple'

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
