My Latest Poem: THERE ARE THOSE WHO SAY


THERE ARE THOSE WHO SAY

There are those who say life is little but an illusion,

A matrix of the mind,

A trick up the tuxedoed sleeve,

A dramatization of our own, or someone else’s, impressionistic imagination.

There are those who say life is little but an illusion,

That reality is a realm existing somewhere beyond it,

If, indeed, reality is real, or is a realm.

There are those who say life is little but an illusion,

But if we slice our finger, do we not drip blood?

If we are slapped, do we not howl in pain?

If our lover leaves us, do we not panic with despair?

And when we realize the end of days, do we not die?

There are those who say life is little but an illusion,

But if this is illusion,

I do not wish to know what lies beyond it.

So tell me what you think.
