On This Occasion

There is only this occasion, here, now,
the occasion we're all dressed up for, fashion
disported for all its worth;  notice how
we travel on the crest, the life, the passion;
 
the picture, sound, the thing encapsulated,
caught, caught, caught - in the catching, catching, catching!
the flight of hours, the present calculated
to a tantalizing moment's worth, snatching
 
which, consciousness creates these things anew:
immanence endows with, substance in touch,
whose form is knowledge, personally true,
unaffected; a world of transience, such
 
as we immortalise, and count as real;
on this occasion, now, to touch, to feel.
