The Vigor

Where does heightening come from
but from the will life delivers to moments
infusions, oils, heat: combine for metabolic
destinies; but we don't believe in that
after god died, there was a reckoning
and people thought people were God.

That was a mistake, but it was vigorous.
The word but is an answer to no questions.
Answers are not useful, neither are questions.
Restful calm is an absurd response to chaos.
Absurdity is unwise.
Wisdom is for fools.

Put your energy into, what?
There are heavens in the jut
between two cliffs carved by a slow
river on geologic rhythms:
rock beds to sleep in because
we must wake up to cause
and effect, letting the world
do as it does, and so do we.
