AFTER THE RAPTURE.

Spent, sweaty and out-of-breath

We lie back and

Light a single cigarette

To be shared in symbolic

Celebration after an intergalactic

Battle between brazen faith and

Foolish adventure.

My tattered wings clumsily

Tucked in between my back

And the thin Styrofoam mattress;

Your head buried in my chest

And your matted hair still wet from

Our midnight dip in the Styx.

Who would have guessed that

The heaven of our making

Would be like this? .. so

Characterized by the mundane,

With intermittent interruptions

Of surrealistic struggles for

Survival: win or lose .. all

Or nothing .. one day at a time.

As the moon eclipses, the last

Sight I see before I drift off

Is the withered bonsai in the

Opening of our pre-war dwelling.

A reminder of a time when

We still dared to sleep soundly;

Carefully wrapped in unencumbered

Dreams in the style of our ancestors.

Get a life — like, NOW!

There is no time like the present … to start loving, to stop hating,
to learn acceptance of differences, to refrain from accepting and tolerating
rudeness, deception, manipulation …

There is no time like the present … to be yourself —
not the “self” that you have learned to be (by default or through force),
but the “self” that you feel really vibrates within you.

There is no time like the present … to get a life.

Do it now! Do it before it is too late …
