 SEEDS OF GROWTH by Pam

DEATH SLIDE




All my death, life has been my aim;
As though my aim had anything to do with the reality.

spinning into a death slide, inexorably.

As though I could negate the knowing
that life, the explosive charge of me, pulsates
the frustrating awareness of impending

As though I could negate the knowing
that, along the way, other missiles course
in a profusion of  ballistic arcs

illusory einsteinian relativistic phenomenon
of apparent lack of motion.

As though I could negate the knowing
that in the immutable mathematics,
infinity and zero equate;  both an
abstraction beyond comprehension.

As though I could negate the knowing
that reason begs the lies for life;
creating scenes, a drama here or there;
happy or sad.  As if by sheer will power
the only end becomes the only illusion.

As though I could negate the knowing
that pain and /or joy, fame and /or fortune;
win and/or lose; success and /or failure
