Calamity Lessons

What are the insights

Learned from this calamity?

The old wretched man asked in the

Soft afternoon light

I watched his wrinkled face

And gave him a nervous smile

“There is nothing to be learned”, he said

“We will always repeat ourselves

Like a perpetual cascading failure machine

This is the purpose of our life on this earth

Repeating others mistake and multiply them

Until the world ends and it is time for the

Universal breakfast to take place“

The Third Night

I could not sleep
The night felt like an eternity
A five the sleep took me away
Like the wind in trees
Going on in eternity
A Woman I became
Full of fear and agony
I died in childbirth
Twenty years I spent
With you
When I woke up
My bed was full of blood
Even though it was a dream
The body suffered a great deal
