EASTER RESCUE

Image result for trapped in a well painting

Life is nothing but time. Life wishes to be alive tomorrow.

If all of us had time, there wouldn’t be any sorrow.

We seek to wade into the stream,

But the stream is cold and rising. The hope is: death is a dream.

If we are a dream, death proves life unreal, at last.

But life is real—see? we have a past.

Life is a long waiting; life is not the eager snapshot.

Life is more than your point. Life is a lot.

Life is an hour, planning more hours to tell.

Tears of joy! Saved just in time! Isn’t time all we’ve got?

You emerged from the womb, didn’t you? Or were you trapped in a well?

Life is an hour, planning more hours to plan.

You emerged from the womb, didn’t you? Isn’t that what made you a man?

      It’s got a dick-finger thing coming out of it. No way.

        I’m not a big fan of abstract art.

        Abstract prettiness is always kind of nice.

        Sometimes I just can’t find a picture which really fits a poem the way I want, so I sigh and say, let’s go abstract…

          I like abstract art, but this one is disturbing. I didn’t sleep last night thinking about the dick-finger.

          Great, now I just noticed it’s coming out of a vagina.

          I like the poem, though.

            I don’t see it…but I’m not going to look for it!
