Remnants of another aeon

Turquoise ink I save
to write only about love
and bloodletter of mortgage
keeping in the box made of
oak tree wood, copper leaves for its lid
and a splash of heavy lacquer above all
Moschus sprinkled on my epitaph of Graphene
light letters inscribed
with green laser states
“herein floats the Soul
of a Light-man – a remnant
of another eon”.

…as it was in the beginning

They gave up all definitions
layered fossils beneath the argue-
who’s older hen or the egg

Massive droplets of rain
the soil as dry as talcum
release the petrichor we largely
enjoyed- the one we miss
massively today and more and more
in a search of poetics and truth

the road we passed in vein
if it goes out of selves
than nothing have we ever achieved

The world was not ready yet
to absorb a living human
even up between the heavy clouds
the breath is focused on the Constellation
of the heart. Some thousand nerves
from the brain of the heart
which the human named it Intuition

we laugh upon every definition
and still, none can order
a meal with algorithm
but solely by word
as it was
…in the beginning
