Displacement

Displacement

A Poem by The They
"

Bring yourself to love

"
Walk Lost in the chaos of moving feet whose unity lies in their organic flow, Perspectives shift to some new truth: experiencing its constant displacement.  Here
As bodies carry me forward, they rush to the rhythm of those who desire our desires:

I smile and laugh at voices screaming out from billboards and TVs

“What you need is need itself! Don’t look within, but to ME!”

 

 

Drift

Down the street and pause at the window’s reflection.

Behind the still face staring back lies the world’s movement:

With purpose distorted by its realization, the present bursts forth out of nothing:

Pushing

Onward from some inconceivable lack,

Towards a resolution that will not resolve.

Here I close my eyes.

Here there is the silence between thought and its realization:

In which the meaninglessness of boundaries can be discerned.

Here I find myself fall away into everything.

Here I find only Love.

This was a very nifty piece and there is a lot to appreciate about it. The tone, the spontaneity, the sense of discovery, consciousness seeking, it had a lot of vision.

Like a script for something bigger!
