'preference for the latter'... cannot go beyond 'I am'...

'beyond I am'... there is nothing...

already here...

containing all preferences...

yet holding none...

the god that is not believed in from toombaru's perspective is not believed in from michael's perspective either... :D

It is not the God question
that needs to be addressed
but rather the 'I that prefers.'

In the end.. (and the everlasting beginning)
there is of course no 'need' for that either.

Actually....that is a response.

But why is it that you have "no response"?

Three Early Morning Poems of January 2, 2008


Divine Comedy

The Divine Comedy
is not at all
like I thought it
would be or he
said it was—
that is,
if one should happen
to remember the punch line,

without an ounce of regret
or a snowball's chance
in hell

the truth is quite simple
and proper in its proper attire,

we're all dressed up--
talking monkey suits,
with nowhere to go,

neither a fat or slim chance
of getting out alive.



O, Poet


I should be happy
at the thought of you
writing "consumer" poems,
at least that's what they tell me,
now that you've
gone
to the other side, Luke.

See, a Goddess
by any name is your Soul
afire,
and if you deny
any part of it,
the sinew bone and marrow of the woman
who loved you—
there is a price to pay...

Well, darling, you might not
see it yet, but you sold yourself
to the lowest bidder and
the least common denominator,
your poems
empty, emaciated and incomplete,

...only the flesh of love from the fires of
Hell can save you now,

can help you remember
that Love is a gift
you cannot deny.



Words


It's really f******
hard for me to throw
away words,

I have tons of books and someday
I'll reread that one or perhaps
remember I want to remember
a paragraph so perfect—
I should have committed to memory,

often

when I'm in the throes of writing
a Poem, I grab a book,
a random page,
see what
jumps out at me

yeah, I'm really
stuck on words… I have
saved greeting cards from every
occasion--and if I started to be
selective now, where in heavens name
should I start? not the Mommy ones,
not the I love you wife, ones (Liar!)
not the friendship, better days are here
cause I'm thinking of you, not the wish you
were here postcards with that unforgettable sunrise
and palm trees (of course, received in 10 degrees
below zero, with snow up my arse. I remember
I could almost smell the ocean, feel the warm
breeze & sun on my back) but I digress, and it's
white outside, and I'm left with places I have
never gone,

No, I shall keep them all,

like
I keep old emails and stories of gurus & lovely,
significant words, inspirations to the depth of me,

Yes, I'm a wordaholic,
I hoard words in every shape
& form,
typeset & style,
and I rue the day when I shall
run out…

nothing left to say
in my dying breath,
as if the word "I" never existed.



Blessings in 2008,
Anna


So 'nuff said, have fun and play nice!
