Our Predicament

Our Predicament1.jpg
It is hard to pay attention
To the moment at some length
The past or the future
Invariably distracts us,
By their comfort or anxiety,
Leading us into some irrational place,
Or leaving us in nebulous warmth of sleep.

Pulsating beyond
The edge of significance
Uncertain patterns come together
And separate,
Leaving shadows and spaces
That need to be filled,
Or at least identified.

When we wake up in the morning
We neither remember our wrestle
With the moment at night,
Nor do we realize that
We lead ordinary lives
In sometimes
Extraordinary conditions.
