I Have a Coin

I Have a Coin I have a coin I deem a treasure.One side bears the sign of extinction,And the other, an instance of nature.But it’s not a coin; it’s a seal,And the meaning of this distinctionIs the unbearable sadness I feelWith experience, or with closure. It seems like a double exposure,But the knowledge of impermanenceBleeds into the ideal likenessOf mortality in its eminence—To yield a vibrant pictureOf a creature’s essential brightnessAs it burns for life without censure. --Rob NeufeldSee More

An Unfurnished Mind

An unfurnished mind, for example mine, is fun to decorate.

You can throw anything you like inside; the dendrites find it great.

A furnished mind, one unlike mine, is lumbered with a grate

that blocks new input and is snide and can’t expectorate.

You cannot if you expectorate expect to highly rate

with those to whom infinitives split are calls to be irate.

(lines 11,317 through 11,322, volume 7, of imaginary novel Autonomous…
