Ode to Disruption


He’s a Pirate – Orchestra

The purpose of life is to get defeated by
greater and greater things ~Rilke

Most of everything I write is deeply personal even if it only seems like data. I am embarking on a new journey, testing new skills, hopeful to find some latent potential to thrive. As the butterflies in my belly scramble and tumble I find solace knowing that whatever I choose and wherever I land – I will grow and learn.

Self Portrait
It doesn’t interest me if there is one God
or many gods. I want to know if you belong or feel
abandoned. If you know despair or can see it in others.
I want to know
if you are prepared to live in the world
with its harsh need
to change you. If you can look back
with firm eyes
saying this is where I stand. I want to know
if you know
how to melt into that fierce heat of living
falling toward the center of your longing. I want to know
if you are willing
to live, day by day, with the consequence of love
and the bitter
unwanted passion of your sure defeat.

I have heard, in that fierce embrace, even
the gods speak of God.
