In my foolery

You keep telling me
You need a proof
That sky exists

There is no sky
Just atoms bouncing off
One another in empty space

Only a fool would
Argue with this

And yet

In my foolery
I still try to grasp
This no-thingness

And bring you scraps
That somehow didn’t
Fully escape

Somewhere else

You picked
A butterfly
Apart

Ran a hundred tests
Under the best
Microscopes

Rolled it round
A few times
In centrifuges

And now you’re telling me
You figured

What life is all about

Mate
This thing
You’re studying here

Is dead
Already

Life

Is entirely
Somewhere else

Suddenly galaxies

I like your poems you said
But why there’s always some

Suddenly galaxies

Isn’t life enough
To write about

Well

You know
That’s life for me

We’re trying to
Eat lunch together

And then there’s some
Suddenly galaxies

And then I don’t know
Who I am

Or what’s going on
Anymore

Heavy sack

With such burden on your shoulders
How will you spread your wings?

Where we are going they’ll give you
Much more than you can ask for

Put down your heavy sack
Full of what ifs
Just in cases
Emergency plans

And raise
Free to fly
Where the Unexpected awaits

To get hold of the treasure
You’ll have to come empty handed

Pure curiosity

There is a kind of beauty
Found only at near death

Wondering to the desert
With no food or backup plan

There is a kind of wisdom
That only lies on fringes

Far from the common sense
Or any sense at all

There is a kind of people
Who never get bored with this

Pushing the boundaries further
Just for the sake of it

What a ridiculous thing

Generations come
And go
In a blink of a thunder

We watch them spiral in hurricanes
From our deck atop
The peak
Of Unexamined

The song of great green macaw
Lures us to jump and
Join the swirling dance

Over and over she screams
What a ridiculous thing
To be alive
