It all came together    at last...

A spark in the sky
And the night opened...


Such it is for the entity in the earth--

That in order to live you must die--
Anxious and cruelly terse

In earthbound incomprehension of why--


Watch out for 
The hot old foxes--

     Even more than
The young        they will

Blow you in front
For your money

Then laugh behind your back
While they spend it


I can feel the finish line looming--

Not see it  mind you
But feel it--

Emanating invisibly as
Out a crooked tunnel
In overlay
Upon my sight--

Every step bringing me closer
To the mad last dash
And the ribbon snapped
By the hurling body--

The race with myself done
In which neither I nor myself won--
The Higher-Self-'I' taking a lesson
While lower-case 'me'

Lies paralyzed in the spent shell--
But as cheering fades and dissolves
And sight goes black
And soul peels out from completed skin--

Feeling comes to certainty--
As I go the line will trip me unawares and

I     at last   will see..


We resume  (how appropriate for a Mercury
                         and what will come will come--
Keep busy
Stay active
Do what you must and be done

It will turn out as it will--

Put your whole being in one laser focus
Of will and attention on whatever of yours is at hand

And fix the first breach that set you on your way
