this is the act of remembering;

new growth.

of women, of plants, of men,

and other things;

of rocks, of beasts, and everything.

This is called rejoicing –

often emitting in sighs, and songs,

and pain –

joining the inside with out

through searing and drowning,

the fluids, the ashes –

This is how we mourn.

and dawn all continue

their leakage and drift,

And thus we are released –

like tears,

like dust,

And something absorbs

it all:

the hair, the blood,

the love, the screams,

the differences and repetitions

of traumas and loss

such awesome gains

each beauty its’ evening,

And so we reach –

snow falling

naked

to another flesh

touching

.

because

pornography –

or a species –

that decides

.

to maximize

pleasure

that is,

.

to accumulate

idea-lie-zed

fantasies

.

is a result

of the cause

of desiring

.

sanctity and space,

scientia” it is called

paradise, heaven

.

Nowhere. Nirvana.
