WHAT IS OBLIVION?

oh world of these, our sorry hearts
can’t understand much
past things that can be explained,
in the dusk
bare open field
bordered by the deepest forest
i’ve had a lot of time
to think.

would you go with the fog if it came?

have we any real domain
but the thoughts we create
and things created from such seeds
thusly?
to have no real want
or place in this world
or reason that begs us to stay
i’d say
is paradise worth reflecting on.
still, we dream
in this empty land
of things all sorts of better beings
than we
can seize – –
points
and meaning
and purpose.

would you go with the fog if it came?

the trees all around me
got branches
low yet lofty
perfect for swinging legs
and from here
i’d watch you lazily graze
down in the grass
on all the sorts of conceptions
you could dream

but would you go with the fog if it came?

i don’t claim the land
or man
or any animal
only the actions i do against them
so i could go in the fog
i suppose
if it came
but i wouldn’t let it take me
and to be unafraid
to stay there
and make it
one’s own
alone
well
that’s a whole lot of strength
to be seeking
ain’t it?

would you go with the fog if it came?
