Villanelle: The Poietics of Being


This World and All that we see and cannot
Came into being without warning
With its Past and Future replete with plot

There’s no such thing as the Present in slot
For there’d be no one to see in Yijing*
This World and All that we see and cannot

Those that want to see this World in their cot
Give it incomplete myth and beginning
With its Past and Future replete with plot

That’s why it’s endless and far too way out
Made to elude any true mind’s probing
This World and All that we see and cannot

Break this eternal chain: the sexual knot
And the Yang will allay the Yin binding
With its Past and Future replete with plot

No Heaven will be claimed by senseless clot
Mindless matter will then clash clang and cling
This World and All that we see and cannot
With its Past and Future replete with plot

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
