IN THE MOMENT

 


IN THE MOMENT

-       Ted Pearson (U.S.A.)

1

Sublime extremities of scale define us.

The less said the better, though the least

said it best: we are as specks of cosmic dust

where finite thoughts are laid to rest.

2

Our labors done, we dwell in dreams.

Psychic levers pull our strings.

Poems give voice to human extremes,

bearing witness to impossible things.

3

Is knowledge of death an impediment

to thought or a spur to further thinking?

The winds of discussion power our fate,

which we must face unblinking.

4

Ever fraught, the history of thought,

resembles a mise en abyme –

where each according to its nature mirrors

each according to its dreams.
