wisdom

there is something missing in our wisdom
and you were born
to find it
*

we are lived more than we live
*

how do you die?
how do I die?
it seems to me that the spirit
of vitality
determines that
not the body
and they rarely if ever agree
*

individuals become sociopaths
when indoctrinated by a culture
of narcissism
*

is belonging to a group
wearing an identity in common
the greatest human weakness?
*

everytime I see a solitary leafless tree
I feel as though I am looking into a mirror
*

remember: silence is the fence
around wisdom
much the same way as speech
can shelter lies
*

people who live for the poetry
regardless of circumstances
verify the existence
of what is both essential
and unspeakable
*

I remember remembering
it was always enlightening
and devastating
something beyond consciousness
survives
without you
through you
it remembers you
*
