Lamp


In the flame is the heat of life.
In the fire is the light of love.
The flame is the flower of love.
The fire is the face of God.


 






Ó Deusa


Ó Deusa, você é potencialidade infinita.
Eu adoro você em todas suas várias formas.
Para amar totalmente outro, você dá à luz Deus.
Eu me rendo ao êxtase de DeusaDeus.
Ó Sim! DeusaDeus! Ó Sim! DeusaDeus!
DeusaDeus! DeusaDeus! Ó Sim! Ó Sim!


O Goddess, you are infinite potentiality.
I worship you in all your various forms.
To love another totally, you give birth to God.
I surrender to the ecstasy of GoddessGod.
Oh Yes! GoddessGod! Oh Yes! GoddessGod!
GoddessGod! GoddessGod! Oh Yes! Oh Yes!


 



Zoological Aesthetics


Zebras and skunks and penguins -
monochromatic in hue -
are they Mother Nature’s inventions
to keep the basics on view?
Colorful mandrills and macaws
enflame the jungley green!
But when sated with them – I pause.
White and black – take me back – to serene.


 



At the Count of Three


All Mysteries – Solved -

All Conflicts – Resolved -

All Impediments – Dissolved -

One – Two – Three!


 



Jagannath


Ninth Street apartment my – wife had flown the coop
Lonely artist with a – gallery one-man show
Big success but – what the hell
My heart was a – dried up empty well
Ninth Street apartment my – wife had flown the coop

Put all my stuff in the – middle of the living room floor
“Liberate the walls!” I – said going crazy you know
Atop the heap – above it all
I set a Hindoo – Jagannath doll
Put all my stuff in the – middle of the living room floor

Jagannath chewed his – way into my heart
He tore through flesh and – took up residence there
Pressed him against me he – gnawed and gnawed
Oh Lord of the World! Al – mighty God!
Jagannath chewed his – way into my heart

I loved Jagannath his – brother and sister too
And sang their names with a – simple daily prayer
“Blessed Siblings Holy – Trinity
Please be visible – unto me”
I loved Jagannath his – brother and sister too

The world turned upside – down and inside out
Matter didn’t matter only – spirit would inspire
I saw the world through – his big eyes
Apartment was gi – gantic size
The world turned upside – down and inside out

You’re the only one who – knows my secret now
I try to be normal but – really I’m a liar
Though it was – forty years ago
He’s still inside me don’t – tell a soul
You’re the only one who – knows my secret now


 



Where It Hides


If you can’t find what you’re seeking, look around.
All in time every secret will be found.
What it takes is awareness that the goal
is the taste of the bareness of your soul.
