Instants' Judgements


You could give to me
or deny
Instants' Judgments
yield or deny
inflate
analyze
or slip
into sublime
your mouth yielding
or purse
hesitant
breathing
or draw away;
these are the
Moments
lives are built upon.

You can accept me
deep within
or deny;
slather it

with guilt
fly
into
dusty scenarios
which
crush-
Instant's Flailings
leaving
behind
our
only too
Human Failings.

And I
Mouth Bereft
close slowly
Sorrow Filled
unknowing
grieving
Love Leaving
from a
Singular and Incomplete Unknowing
form that
vantage point.

It is the not knowing
which is Crux
because
it became
unknown
in
Instant's Fleeting Touch
in a Mouth's Closing
is a lifetime
lost;
in
mouth,
breasts,
and heavings
foreclosed-
Instants' Foreclosing
Eons Forgone.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
