New Yearís Wish

we need reminding, the time
clicking nervously, our feet in cold mud,
the answers found in retro bookshops,
only the keeper at the door
with enough time to cue.

we need the relaxation found
in tar pits, ancient animals lost
in ooze, their huge ears flapping,
then disappearing in blackness.

we need machines to rupture the cabal,
to excise the insects embalmed in translucent
amber, a reddish-pink disaster spanning

we need artisans to pluck these bulbs
of taffy, to round them into ringlets,
out them on display in jewelry shops,
the asking prices pressed into velour napkins,
each courtesan advertising her own pleasure

we need time, we need sharing,
we need, finally, rest and beauty.

And soon enough we will be cloning them and putting them on display for everyone to ogle. I wonder if it is best that they rest where they are, preserved for all the ages, not cast into an environment that is not befitting their way of life. Yes, we do need time, sharing, rest and beauty and we need to find them within our own realm. Cool write, Larry, and a very Happy New Year to you and yours!
Take care,
