The never was

The never was poem

We know not how long we have, only that we have not long, for the world it is until it isn't and then perhaps it never, and was it really ever?

What world is this?


What is all this

What world is this, what space and what time? What body is this I inhabit? And what road is this I travel? What world is this? What world is this?

This is the world in which we live, until it's that in which I did and then this world, this world that is, is but the world that was. A world that was.

Woe is man?


Woe is man poem

In the beginning there was nothing, then from the darkness came the light. And like a Faustian bargain, you cannibalize life to live until your short life is taken. Woe is man to whom so much is given only to be taken. But life was given, and it is something, so while we’re here... live. Live now for it is to enhance appreciation that we have it taken.
