‘products of wealth and privilege … from different planets’

Wikipedia Poem, No. 800


    reclusive one

     brash improbable courtship
red-carpeted enmity 

      step in a gamble 
       of counterstruck 

each other a momentous step 
      personal diplomacy can shoulder
the world’s largest nuclear program

“When I say ‘I,’ I am lying. Let us posit the ‘I’ of perception—neutral and limpid. Put it next to the ‘I’ of intermediation—when you look at it this way, my body belongs to me; or, more exactly, I belong to my body. What do we observe? An absence of contact. Fear what I say.” Michel Houellebecq


journey of what is our concept of nothing?
understand these vast new shapes

of whom science say journey of the universe
what eye?
on display for a reward

moving then not
not moving then gone—all of it
