Nor can the darkness still the whispering in the trees.
not measurable,
but who already knows.
“shows paranoid symptoms”
plying the boats like lyres.
not hearing me at all
though they stood at the door
during a reading
Some vanished soon after.
Laws of nature
The trees are, the nights grow longer bit by bit,
Still, it is as sad as a child
Living concepts
Free when obey self
Discover self
just after i said
probably for her psychology class
“this is a paranoid poem – written when i was experimenting with paranoid states of
consciousness, but i’m not there anymore”
so slowly nobody notices.
Education of feelings
Cognitive unity
Feeling mysticism
or on the shore beside the boats
to whom one speaks soothingly, from whom one is keeping something,
Others stayed.
Best possible world
Into the high ancestral spaces
True individuality
Pain outweighs pleasure
This admits of endless interpretation.
like in Milwaukee
Some gave a sense of size,
& a young girl sat writing
This says nothing.
Rejection of supernatural influences
Purpose of life
Absolute spiritual being
