Villanelle: If You Scoff At The World We Live In


If you scoff at the world we live in
You’ll slip and fall and break your neck
Better bury your bones in between

Seek not our galaxy to win
For myriads luminous beck
If you scoff at the world we live in

Each in his solipsistic bin
Twists and turns and rots without break
Better bury your bones in between

What life there is has locked us within
With no way out but by mistake
If you scoff at the world we live in

Even safe eutopias spin
On their dreamers’ axes breakneck
Better bury your bones in between

Ask not if life’s but wanton sin
The moon also rises by daybreak
If you scoff at the world we live in
Better bury your bones in between

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
