Missing Zero (Book Review)

Another fellow blogger here at WordPress reviews Missing Zero! And, no, he’s not on the payroll…yet. 😉


the pleistocene precedent

nature
oftentimes
appalls
with
its
economy
of
scale
downsizing
entire
species
seemingly
on
a
callous
whim
for
what
at
first
glance
suggests
beauty
in fact
masks
a
process
of
ruthless
selection
grow/prosper
or
perish
is
the
rule
of
natural
law
negating
all
chance
of
reprieve
or
appeal
to
a
higher
court
and
thereby
belying
all
belief
in
mother
gaia’s
munificence
which
is
at
best
a
fairy
tale
or
a
misleading
myth
clung
to
by
humankind
like
a
security
blanket
riddled
with
loopholes.

An Insider’s Glimpse Before the Show

Before the circus starts
The performers prepare
Their routines in casual dress
No sequins or capes
Just t-shirts and track pants
As the aerial silk or tissu girl
Practises her death-defying stunts
Above the empty audience stalls
For now, the magic is unspoken
No ringmaster calls forth the oohs
And aahs! But still there’s wonder
And a hush when the girl
Falls to within inches of the floor
All that is missing, that makes for
A soft landing, applause.


Where’s the Pun in That?

Not having drunk yet
Enough to fall down drunk
I’ll resort to poetry
To provide solace
In the face of life’s
Newest misadventure
Whatever short-coming
That may be
An immovable feast of
Broken sleep and what
Dreams come undone
That cruelly abide within
Me, an empty vessel
Drained of purr-puss
I’m feline cat-astrophic.


The Vehicle is Only Half the Message

Upon finding myself
Unable to drive any more
I decided here was my inner poet
Telling me to slow down
The giddy rush of images and
Sights that had to stop
If I was going to focus on
And carefully inspect each
Moment of experience fully
In the alembic of the mind’s eye
So as to perceive its Paracelsian signature
Before redressing the subtle body’s imbalance
With words of inspired reverence.


The Omega Clause

Time is a glutton and devours all
Within its sight, leaving nothing
But scraps of eroded meaning
Skeletal skeletons of arbitrary form
We are subjected to its rigor
Mortis, like husks of dried insects
Collecting in drifts upon the window sills of
Mortality turned to dust with our final exhale.
