Full Moon Retrograde Mercury Open Window

5722 Feb. 82


The world does not need Evil;

it just needs People. We do

not need to find Monsters in Space;

we just need People. We do

not need Mad-scientists or Mad-doctors;

we just have People.


We do not need Ugly-people to be

pretty; we have Pretty-people

who are ugly. We do not

need Bad-people to be good;

we have Good-people who are bad.

We do not need Truth becoming

a lie; we have Lies that

have become truth.


We need not fear Peace will

become War; we have War that

has become Peace. We do not have

to fear that Weapons will become Tools;

we have Tools that have become Weapons.

We should not fear Freedom becoming law;

we have Law that has become freedom.


In the trough before the next wave,

I do not practice the primal howl;

I practice the primal whimper.

The dichotomy of doing and not doing

when all the doing seems to be

reflection of moon in the water

pointing out to the edge of the world.


It is not the sun that rises;

it is I that rotates to the sun.

The dunes travel to night.

In the swirl of sand and water’s

squalls, the wail of Beast in storm

lures blinded hunters

into the gyre of illusion and desire.

John Smith, IIMXIII is the avatar of an award winning poet, artist, etc. who still lives in the Palouse country of the Pacific NW. He has not received much notice with his prose . . . but as his avatar, I hope that he keeps plugging along.
