All Souls

What did I
Seminated the night, as though
there could be others, more nocturnal than
this one.
Bird flight, stone flight, a thousand
described routes. Glances,
purloined and plucked. The sea,
tasted, drunk away, dreamed away. An hour
soul-eclipsed. The next, an autumn light,
offered up to a blind
feeling which came that way. Others, many,
with no place but their own heavy centers: glimpsed and avoided.
Foundlings, stars,
black, full of language:named
after an oath which silence annulled.

And once (when? that too is forgotten):
felt the barb
where my pulse dared the counter-beat.

“The purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things.”

I backed up everything.


I backed up everything.

I woke up with this piece playing in my head - my favorite piano player (guess who?) plays Ludwig van Beethoven's “Rondo alla ingharese quasi un capriccio" in G major, Op. 129 Rage Over a Lost Penny, Vented in a Caprice (Die Wut über den verlorenen Groschen, ausgetobt in einer Caprice)?
