poetical investigations

Poetical_investigations_pablo_saborio

Visualize

the first act

of violence

that gave meaning

to the word

‘violence’

the first dog

that symbolized the

genus of all dogs –

the moment

when abstract

was no longer

a word

but the whole history

of the world

 
 

Imagine

the timeless

before we gave

it a name

or happiness

before it

became a goal

or truth

when consciousness

was still ineffable

and nesting
 
 

Suppose

meaning

was the hardest

bone

and eternity

a living

cloud
 
 

Conceive

matter as the

drying spirit

or spirit

as the sleep

of atoms
 
 

Assume

if only once

that essence

is the entire

instant of life –

and death

is the entire

essence of poetry.
