Sometimes, we have to take score… we are so fucking solipsistic.


WHERE COMES...

From nowhere
Water appears
Shades of light
Nature
Me
You
The I of it all
But not you
Not me

Where comes...
Energy profound
Beyond the physical
Beyond mind
Soul
Heart
Infatigable what?

Might we be but
The macaronic essence
We shun
Allowance of expression
Leading to
The infinitesimal speck
This planet
This land
This body
So beyond the...

Where comes...
Energy it's called
Inspiration it's honored
Lust for...
No
I won't say it
You
Me
Are nothing

Unless...

Life is not just this I
Looking beyond self
Life makes small
All we protect
Fight for
Defend
Then destroy

How folly
This
I

So

C'mon
Look elsewhere
There's more
That beginning of another time
Is within
Nature
To redact
Energy

Call upon essence
Beyond mere mortal guesswork
Consensus
Socrates
Camus
Popper

Where comes...
Sheer joy
The breath
Allowing claim

Life

Where comes...
The simplest of needs

Huh?

Anything else?

Oh,
How I enjoy the wakeup calls

Where comes knowing?

Sartre's "Nausea" comes to mind as I read this, admittedly, difficult poem to get through. "Oh, / How I enjoy the wakeup calls / Where comes knowing?"

The "I" is among the lost and found for the most part. Where comes knowing indeed. The stout-hearted individualists, uh, the "I" among is are slowly (more rapidly lately) falling into the cistern of "all." We are led into the that cistern, standing in luke-warm apathy, having given up on the "I," because "I" is "us," is "all," never to be seen again until one day, in the midst of a horrible future someone, (accent on the "one" in the someone) will use the word "I" and thusly began a world revolution as Ayn Rand smiles.
