Onward

Will it be of any use
When Siddhartha seeks new life
Or David grips his sling to fight

Will it be of any use
When Homer sings a tale of war
Or Plato practices his ideas
Or Virgil apes the Iliad

Will it be of any use
When Luther stands steadfast
Or Galileo scopes the skies
Or Newton’s calculations work
Or Einstein throws his curve at space

Will it be of any use

Stars

i

Dark clouds
Sail abruptly together
With the pale blue sky

ii

The continental shelf
Slides seaward
In white-hot soup
Cooked in the earth’s core
Waves sizzle
And salt the beach

iii

Pain cannot
Wash away happiness
It erupts
And covers even Everest
But not the stars
