Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Windows and the Law


i have to let my father go, again
i have let him go before but the same
problem remains
and so there he is, looming and
weak but stubborn

history is not merely a series of lamentations
and complaints, ordinances broken
speeding tickets and penalties:
history is this enormous window
that is illuminated briefly
try to clean it from time to time
if only to catch a glimpse
of me waving goodbye to 

a man who cannot wave back
