The Comedian

From the stage he throws
his laughs, sea-rambles endlessly,
blows his clouds of dreams
along in the open sky.

In that moment he thinks nothing
of loss or absence of love,
but lights a candle to walk down
the dark passage of his past

picking up orchestrated falls,
the audiences in the blind light
only screech in delight at
his slyly constructed follies.

It doesn't have to end here. A poem is never finished. Yet a word here or there changes the world. Another world another poem; a poem may give birth to another. A poem is never finished. It has a tail long, or a shadow that stretches on and on. I'd rather drown myself in its longings. Forsaking time and space. Condensing myself in this little spot weightless, hence unburdened, without form or shape I don't have to be moulded into anything. I don't have to be anything. It is ironic that an insignificant body would sing about his insignificance as if it were the perfect, most beautiful harmony.
