Zabriskie Point



1.

The mind joins itself

in stark pirouettes of light.


Body kisses soul,

the inrush of blood,

tingling, desire.

The broken mirror of touch.


O how eternal union eludes us.

O how the night sweeps up

pieces of dawn,

scatters them

like stones

from a cairn toppled

in the wind.


2.

Fleurs de lis, fleurs du mal.

Hammer the symbol to clang

like a gong. Hammer the hearer

to echo like a gorge: life, knife, strife.

Immortality swoons

at the grave of the moon.


Ask for excess, more

than you could want.

Ask for redemption from

being-unto-death.


Throw yourself back

into the world.

Urge the Other

to shepherd what is.

Urge the Other

to shadow what is not.

Urge the Other

to care for the great mystery.
