THE RIGHT CONDITIONS FOR A READING

AMONGST THE FORTUITOUS MOMENTS

When there is incongruity

between feeling and event,

puzzlement and moodiness 

in a moment’s texture, 

slippery points of reference–

a sign of silk in a bed of soil.


Or words are sketchy

around affected areas–

intangibility, absence,

rendered out of reach

windows sealed off.

The mind keeps turning left.

The sudden stroke or mental slip… 

the mischief of Goetic demons,

the re-orbiting eight ball magic,

impending death, 

life, or illness,

the Kali stare of sudden change…


Thrillation in the realm of possibles,

agonies of time and

the Hamlets on bubbles,

siddhi powers that tantalize,

the sinking ships of one’s stomach,

the being stuck inside a head-vice,

the oscillations of ambiguity,

the split conditions and mixed messages,

the straddling of large extremes, 

the scissoring of dossiers,

the no rectitude, closure, or conclusion,

the tripped-out flagpoles and spinning webcams–


Or else quite the opposite–

fantastic luck! Love,

the light of angels, lust– 

the gravities you feel to enter,

to catch and be caught in it,

to make mirrors of molecules

to craft outcomes in serendipity,

to rise up in the untold forms 

to make love in the willing gusts…

These are amongst the fortuitous moments.
