Mes amie, des poesie, bonsoir

Contemplation
by Bradford Shank

It is good
To put the world together
now and then
Into an unbroken piece
And to contemplate it whole.
If done in sincerity
This form of prayer
Dims the cutting lines
Of past abstraction
Permitting us to carve out
New fragments
Of greater utility
And beauty.
Or
If you like it better
We can reverse the analogy
And recommend the periodic destruction
Of our verbal maps
Our outward habits
Our ingrown attitudes
So that
Out of this rubble
We may build
A new world
Better suited
To a growing need
And finer discrimination.

Via Idea Achitect Jeffrey Cufaude
