FIRST SIGHT
(8/19/06)


perhaps
the truth is there
when we first emerge
from the bloody womb
not yet obscured
by the infinite
layers of lies
which society
has waiting
for our
education

perhaps
even though
our understanding
is at a minimum
we could actually see
the absolute
if we could
only overcome
the overwhelming shock
of our new
environment

perhaps
if we could immediately
focus those fuzzy little eyes
we would see something
of import
and not
the thinly veiled
veneer of modern myths
that even the youngest
of our elders
already accept
as the
fact

but
we cannot
and we are assailed
by the other
four senses
to the point
where all
we can do
is cry

God
awaits us
at the moment
of birth
and laughs
at us
from that
moment
forward
