sisyphus

a wise man once said

that if you stare into the darkness

you become like them.

how long till we reave,

or cleave to nothing.

how many dimensions must i travel,

till my soul becomes empty

and the nights grow weary –

stay, watch cable tv.

there must be enough of nothing

from something,

.

how many turns and shivers,

groaning like trickles down a stream.

that bustling chariot hurries forward –

she’s a genius!

were that lonely grants memory,

or memory that makes one lonely.

the sandman is silent,

he knows he has made an artist.

.

how many in that darkened night,

have come forth works of art.

that all mankind were lonely,

what a sight of beauty it would be!

.

a wise man once said,

that if you stare into the darkness,

one laughs,

what can compare to that within?

we are all sages in the end.
