“Of Course”

Of course you’re slightly disconcerted, you should be. Now
That you’re alive and well and thriving,. . . how
Else should you be?
…after all, you’re really here….
You know; a little here and there will never hurt,
And if you’re good at what you do the benefiits assert
Themselves. Sooner or later we’ll get the point.
Knives and forks and spoons are placed precisely on the table.
When your but’s are in a basket and your no’s are out of joint
With the seasons and the people, aliens crawl
Through pipelines, conduits, and everything in the air ducts maul
The lungs since the filter’s often worse than what’s in the air.
Yes, well, someone’s never mentioned in this nor cared
Enough to remove the label when they had the chance
While the thing’s still breathing. Price tag thus, and at first glance,
The truth is just as obvious and nothing short
Of brilliant, worthy of protection, noteworthy of report
Amongst the never-you-mind might-have-been’s.
Back then to the backfire and the stall. The mid-flight
Process includes a message from the pilot, “Don’t tell a soul
But we’ve already landed, nor in bronze or silver, but, damn! solid gold.

  1. Thank you for this poetic stranger…

    I really needed this today. I find it strangely fitting that such synchronicity should exist.

    Keep doing the work. It’s wonderful.

  2. Remarkably and Transparently Enigmatic 🙂

    • ….as is the daily news from Israel, Gaza, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, et hoc genus omne, fires and floods in the West, thousands of immigrant children arriving on the southern border, <et al….unless of course, one knows the Source (or lack thereof) that maintains the proposition that 2 + 2 = 4…

  3. Very strong and effective.
