360º

I look down at my feet sometimes
stretched out on the couch my ten
knobs, the high arch, the
ocean
behind or the curtains, or the
wall with recent paintings
and the works Mingus gives me
to show his love and
devotion

and as I look out along my
legs and see a giant
relative to the pin-point
of consciousness perceptively
responsible for this—
ant, bee, one one
millimetre tall human
shaped existence

what in me shrinks
to that?, I am of a being
of
incomprehensible
magnitude and phenomenal
power

to influence the
heads on the flowers, effect
the noisy neighbour, the rock
in my hand, the fly
of my ointment,
the hard nut ‘I Am’

among the later
platitudes, gigantic multi-cellular
forms
when soil is revealed
microscopically
in a fertile field, or beside the
runway aviation fuel
shimmer, nothing is hidden,
things are made secret
by not disclosing methods: sit in the sun,

with your clothes on
or off, and your arms
open, or crossed,
becoming the orb: Sol Om On—
ra dot com
am poor role model drunk
and on the pipe
man below his feet and spreading out.

  1. again: so good. you see it all, large and small. but better than all that is the way you express it: the words seem to have a life of their own, but (or ‘and’) the rhythm is great
