many experiences are “good” –

nourishing, satisfying,

even ecstatic and astounding…


but at some juncture

you want

to be lying down



to another flesh





pornography –

or a species –

that decides


to maximize


that is,


to accumulate




is a result

of the cause

of desiring


sanctity and space,

scientia” it is called

paradise, heaven


Nowhere. Nirvana.

  1. I read today the file I made a few years ago entitled “Nathan My Favories.” It opens with the quotation: ” I’m afraid to write. It’s so dangerous. Anyone who’s tried, knows. The danger of stirring up hidden things – and the world is not on the surface, it’s hidden in its roots submerged in the depths of the sea. In order to write I must place myself in the void.” No kidding. I raise my glass to the void, to you. Salut. Ching-Ching. I give thanks.

  2. I’m coming back to this poem.
    To tell you that on encountering its beauty…
    the cadence, the mood, a certain sense of desire…
    I was inspired to go and listen to Calling All Angels…
    Jane S. by K.D. Lang…
    Thank you for your words.
    Their soulfulness.
