IN-TO-IT-INGS by Scott Watson

IN-TO-IT-INGS

crooked old tree

your wood stinks

who wants you?

stray dog, mange

filth starvation, who

wants you?

diseased old bag

lady who wants you?

defective

poems do.

 

 

some turn up their nose

at those who live

to stay alive.

 

 

KUNG FU

grasshopper,

how is it you cannot see

your self reflected?

Lady GaGa talks about artist Marina Abramovic

But the monks of the Middle Ages, and the clerics too, believed that the inner paradise was the ultimate ground of freedom in man’s heart. To find it one had to travel, as Augustine had said, not with steps, but with yearnings. …Paradise is simply the person, the self, but the radical self in its uninhibited freedom.
