Enlightenment
















the purpose of the machine
was to demonstrate
the purposelessness of the machine

~

we stand around
amazed, naked,
finery swept from our backs
by the tempest

~

savagely
o
so savagely
rain falls
on the disappeared house

~

none of us sleep
which is why we were dreaming
when ...

~

the purpose of the machine
is to demonstrate
its non-existence;
only the sleeping, dreamless,
creatures that cry out
in the night,
find its cogs & wheels &
starting handles
to be of a beauteous
& straightforward
utility

~

gently
o
so gently
rain falls
on the disappearing house
