“It is living and ceasing to live that are imaginary solutions. Existence is elsewhere.” Andre Breton

Where Do You Go?

When something like that happens where do you go,
how do you begin to bend time within time
and cope with the grief of stolen promises,
while remaining witness to the passing narrative.

How do you begin to bend time within time,
to create a new map of unexpected futures,
while remaining witness to the passing narrative
of the challenges of the disintegration of truths.

To create a new map of unexpected futures
that come from within our own imaginations,
of the challenges of the disintegration of truths
in the beautiful collapse of the so called real.

That come from within our own imaginations,
and cope with the grief of stolen promises
in the beautiful collapse of the so called real,
when something like that happens where do you go?

  1. Science actually supports time-bending, like the observer traveling near the speed of light will experience time much more slowly than an observer at rest.

  6. Paul, your Muse and this form have a marriage made in Heaven. The segue between the third and last verses here is yet another sparkle on the wavelength of your brilliance. It’s such a pleasure to feel your spirit beside my own in these ethers — two too true poets 🙃🙃
