Life


Suffering is sweet
So is life in sleep
That we love to live and tweet
One after another we sleep
Life is the lie we share together
The falsehood we can't betray
The loyalty to break alters
Our hearts the hands that pray
The wicked kindness
Life is the outright sin
From the day of Adam
To the land of you and me
Life is he that told us a lie in Adam
Life is the tree in the middle
Of the garden the juice the fruits
The taboo in the mist of marbles
Life is the lie and sin we trust
Life is the grave of Adam
The sepulcher of Eve
The quarrel of Cain and Abel
The madness of Cain
Sure life was here before us
Taken from Adam taken from us
Taken away life used to be a dream
And once you sleep life is lost
Life must have been a program

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
