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 ...
That's the way it is. Try as we might we still falter forwards
into an abyss, where the ground below deceives us
to understand that we can stand upright-but cannot!
The deception is translated into life too.
At one time the complexities purge us clean
and again, without even questioning we spring headlong
into an unclean state of mind.
