being truly awake
is being truly afraid...
even the loving things we do cannot be seen
without the dark edge of creation blazing around it
showing how ephemeral all material things are...
and yet here in these skins is the only way
we can experience this living...oh sick sad madness of God
to teach us in this horrible way...
to try and save what we love and losing it because
'he who would save him life must lose it'
each of us...each of us...each and every one of us
a careening car with broken brakes wheeling down some infernal road
with a wall in the way growing larger in the windshield
and in that end being more truly awake beyond truly afraid....
