Every evening I set on fire what in the morning I admire


Every evening I set on fire what in the morning I admire.
Every evening I regret what in the morning I forget.
Every evening I dismiss what in the morning I promise.
Every evening I restore what in the morning I ignore.
Every evening I explore what in the morning I deplore.
Every evening I adore what in the morning I abhor.
Every evening I advise what in the morning I despise.
Every evening I devise what in the morning I revise.
Every evening I contend what in the morning I amend.
Every evening I offend what in the morning I defend.
Every evening I suspend what in the morning I transcend.
Every evening I lose what in the morning I abuse.
Every evening I face what in the morning I erase.
Every evening I destroy what in the morning I enjoy.
Every evening I say what in the morning I delay.
Every evening I neglect what in the morning I protect.
Every evening I deject what in the morning I expect.
Every evening I fear what in the morning I revere.
Every evening I perceive what in the morning I receive.
Every evening I desire what in the morning I require.

When life rushes by deceptively slow


When life rushes by deceptively slow
and the next moment happened an aeon ago,
When stones and graves like flowers grow
and the sand of a desert like rivers flow,
When the door of a house is its solitary window
and the only bridge is that of a rainbow,
When the broad road is narrow
and the deep well is shallow,
When the target hits the arrow
and the clouds fall from the snow,
When the wall dances on a shadow
and joy brings more sorrow,
When the foe is the best fellow
and experience makes you more callow,
When the end is now
and past – tomorrow,
Then remember and know:
“As above, so below.”

I dance for you, my crippled brother


I dance for you, my crippled brother.
I run for you, my maimed brother.
I travel for you, my barbaric brother.
I talk for you, my mute brother.
I sing for you, my deaf brother.
I gaze for you, my blind brother.
I laugh for you, my sad brother.
I cry for you, my happy brother.
I lie for you, my honest brother.
I eat for you, my hungry brother.
I drink for you, my thirsty brother.
I learn for you, my foolish brother.
I read for you, my illiterate brother.
I sleep for you, my awake brother.
I walk for you, my lame brother.
I meditate for you, my anxious brother.
I worry for you, my calm brother.
I fight for you, my cowardly brother.
I rule for you, my servile brother.
I sin for you, my good brother.
I slay for you, my innocent brother.
I marry for you, my solitary brother.
I love for you, my evil brother.
I live for you, my dead brother.

No poet ever wrote a poem


No poet ever wrote a poem.
No singer ever sang a note.
No power ever solved a problem.
No citizen ever had a vote.

No builder ever built a castle.
No actor ever played a role.
No soldier ever fought a battle.
No deity ever saved a soul.

No writer ever wrote a story.
No artist ever imitated nature.
No moment ever had its glory.
No hour ever left the future.

No writer ever wrote a volume.
No liar ever told a lie.
No money ever had a value.
No mirror ever saw an eye.

No sentence ever contained a letter.
No forest ever had a tree.
No border ever had a center.
No man or woman were ever free.
