EARS TO HEAR:
(About Ready With Rites)


What have you heard without the
Ears to hear -without hippocampus
To relate to learn from experience
The rites and paths to the way of life
Algorithms may then decide it all
Punctuation is basic characters and
Theme lives in the plot lend no moral
At all the moral of the thought? Yes
Stories tell us about love to love
Or settle on the moral and live out
The essence in the silence of thought
Words are found that describe but
Leaves hope that love survives
Love is power to control -the moral
Expressed in other words -the soul
The rite to love is to love in every way
Ready to memorize rites constrained
To sense what eyes closed suffer to see
What suffering is -the spirit is -the wine
But hesitant to face each obstacle unless
Encountered more than once before
So many rites hidden from view fool
Belief -in words love is meant to endure
So shall rites in love be







(Lee B. Mack, Ears To Hear, Page 2)


Whether for thinking found in vessels full
Up ahead lies things configured without
Poetry of love in sex diminished to life
Experience and words exposed to wither
What sex translates sensibly is visible love
Spirit is bliss that never grieves a soul
Or sound of punctuation that transforms
Words and independent clauses into love
Words were music scores read before the
Chance to read canon that unfolds truth
Uncontested and taught by the teachers
In secondary schools
Epics lay upon desks of idle minds of base
Belief -spans of attention shut down with
Less desire than sex demands -so love that
Woman -what is hidden may be exposed
In her children who will look like images
Of her man 'Truth is always the mother
Knowledge is the father' so the children
See what is meant to see -they have the
Ear to hear all the possibility of platonic
Indulgence -given another implication
Empty hesitation inferred as holiness
Engages boys who made out.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
