The great wave came and
Swept me away
Like a mote seen floating in a sunlit room
I drift now
But I also see and
This world through which
These currents carry
I learned a thing and
But it made me
For am I swept now away and
There is no telling where
I might next be

sometimes, I need to waste something
Los Angeles, 8 March, 2015
It just did.
In that gooey stuff that was to pass for time,
There was a moment, and then There Was Life™.
It was the same moment the universe was made.
And because time really isn’t,
It was the same moment every mote was made;
And every energy ravaging star
That was or ever will be;
And there were great collidings,
Barely giving time for coalescing before the massive forms
Rent one another in blinding demonstrations of cosmic force.
But we were not made, for we did the making, and were,
The Life that we created.
Formless or formed, it is us.

Though you may stop the clock,
The Great Fallacy fools us all!
And yet –
The mask of beingness and becomingness
Covers every rock, every tree, every…thing.
It hides us from each other,
For “the time is not right.”
You would let time rule your life,
That great lie at the center of all lies?
Do not. Do not.
For I would like to accept your forgiveness,
And give you mine.

“…by any other name…,” said the ill-fated lover.
So, what is in a name?
What do you picture when I say, “a rose”?
Is it this?
Do you expect a certain scent? Thorns? A long stem?
Do you think of romance, love, and matters of the heart?
There is power in names.
We are a people of labels.
Reality is what we think it is.
Names shape reality.
Would you smell as sweet, by any other name?

I am not your Lucifer.
For you deserve a king,
And I am but a pauper and a fool.
