I am observing the world
whose very act of existing
has made us claim
that it is the only world to exist.
I am observing
the shadows of the sun
when suddenly the monkey
appears again, opening
below my language.
It picks up all my words
and chews them, only to spit
them out while producing
a grotesque sound of pleasure.
I’ve seen this monkey many times,
he comes from the world within
that is populated by innumerable monkeys.
They all seek the only thing
they claim is real: monkeyhood.
Monkeyhood is hidden
deep in their jungle,
it can be eaten, soft caramel-like
substance that it is.
But only a few monkeys are able
to reach this sacred core.
The monkeys that visit me
are those that for whatever reason
have stopped seeking monkeyhood.
They would rather appear
unannounced in this world,
to taste a few fragments of illusion –
as I believe they once called it.
I sit watching the shadows of the sun,
here below the clouds while I describe
the indistinct quality of being alive.
I’m sharing the process of creating new artworks, join me on my explorations at my new Facebook Art Experience page.
There is in
my shadow a rock
that seems to be a rose.
to be brief,
the reality of an appearance.
The field of mist: life.
In it, a hard substance
that imitates the softness of love.
I am spectator and hungry stage.
Everything is busy.
As I am.
Trying, I am trying to be a place
for things to dwell inside me.
I only see the there.
Otherwise to taste nothing
and find it so sweet.
I can look at you, you’re it
that piece of motion that
clings to change.
So am I, besides anything essential.
Here is in that one shadow
a tiny stone we can taste.
Yes, it is really a cloud
without hope of being
like a flower above the sea.
I am pleased to have a short piece of fiction published in the online journal Mannequin Haus.
You can read ‘The One’ in their 7th issue.
