Look on, reason back

Look on, reason back

Having undertaken an upward spiral
And escaped ontological gravity
I float freely from frame to frame
In the here-now, for example
Plotting my next displacement
Across many worlds branching
I implant my next step-sense
Unknowing inevitable events
Lying light-speeds away
Yet acting non-locally
Opposing equal forces exerting
Redeeming humanity causally

Stumbling onwards

Stumbling onwards

Nostalgia-pain is due, but
Having hosted revenge-hate
I feel surprise-relieved
At change’s buoyant state

Deep breathing and plyometrics
Aid this process from slipping
Into self-harming and despair
As enlightenment encroaches

As a final blow is due
The graceful coup de grâce
Is but a second milestone
Making today a fulcrum

A pivot to the future
Amid echoes from the past
Reminding me of failure
In its multitudinous forms.

Fembe pro-form

Fembe pro-form

Her mind-body scrambles
With primate-like skill
An orangutang of sorts
Seeking higher canopies

Yet always a swing ahead
Of humankind’s centre bulge
Ineluctably its vanguard
Decoherencing the here-now

She scales to new positions
Correspondingly unpopulated
By souls otherwise content
Placing first her self there

It’s not out of love for solitude
Just due to her normalcy
She sees unclaimed hour-lands
And stakes her dominant claim

Fateful encounter

Fateful encounter

The cycle repeats
Meaning time has come
Factors remain suspended
So fate will reoccur.

Making the right call
The eternal dilemma
Instincts battle logic
The environment intervenes

Choosing wrong affects
The chances of being right
Next time around
The backdrop evolves

Take a late encounter
At a taxi stand
Will she, won’t she
Consequences multiply

Watching myself
Being watched
Forming opinions
That might not exist

In her mind
Chances are
As things are
Fate will reoccur.
