Good words, well written, better the world. Good literature betters the world immeasurably.

Solid Is Not a Metaphor


Solid is not a metaphor
It refers to nothing else
But  itself,
As solid as is this earth,
And all upon it.
Even water and the air
All liquids, all gases
Can be frozen into a solid state.

To speak of a person as being solid
Is not a metaphor.
It is to say that that
Person comes across to us as such,
Is dependable, is real.
Is to say that that person is centred
Just as is the earth.

Such a person says what they
Mean and mean what they say.
They stand upon the solid ground
And can look you in the eye
And see you for what you are.

At their core spiritual
Just like the molten core of Earth.
To such people you cannot
Dissemble, you cannot lie.
For they will know
And you will know
That they are not taken in
By your abject foolishness.

Seek, those of you who float,
Spending your live uncertain,
Adrift,
To be like them.
For each of them
Serves to show
This is how you can be.

I’m Going Down with the Titanic


I am going down with the Titanic,
But I am still composing a poem.
They are bringing me up with the Thresher
And I am still composing a poem.

I am up shit creek without a paddle
But I am still composing a poem.
My parachute hasn’t opened yet
Yet I am still composing a poem.

A man over there is pointing a gun
At me but I’m still composing a poem.
They tell me I’ve won the Lottery
But I am still composing a poem.
My girlfriend is ejaculating
For the very first time
Yet I ‘m still composing a poem.

Don’t call me Ishmael; we’ve just sighted
Moby Dick.
But I’m still composing a poem.
They pulled me out of the debris
Of my burnt down house.
But I am still composing a poem.
I’m on the Yellow Brick Road
With Dorothy and Tin Man
And I mean to tell the Wizard
That I’m still composing a poem.

Comrade Stalin says he likes my work
There is no worse a fate
But I am still composing a poem.
Locked up in Siberia, frozen to the marrow
But I am still composing a poem.
Here I am, walking on the moon,
Still composing a poem.

And here we are on the Moon
“Houston, we have a problem:
The computer’s not working
And I can’t write my poem.”
