ruff : The Desire for Magical


 

 

 

to go beyond belief

into certainty

to not settle

but relentlessly push

beyond imagined comforts

 

spending youth as if there was no end

because there wasn’t

 

street corners

cigarettes

never minding the rain

preferring snow to sunlight

wrapped up in that old army field 

comforted by the heat of my own body

needing nothing

wanting everything

 

 – a series of corners to go around

1998

 Being tired of argument

Being tired of Fussing

Being tired of Telling

Being tired of Running

Being tired o f answering

Being  tired of this weight of Things that don’t exist

Commit myself to the pursuit of the truth which does
