Mind Like Media or The Hungry Ghost

Mind like Media

 

The Law of Distraction and the Cult of Attraction

digital ghosts have supplanted the long skinny

necks of the Hungry Ones birthed in childish

dreams of immortality Just Passing Through

goes the refrain from Apocalypse Monks

and Psychedelic Extraterrestrials

 

Laughing and singing in tenthousand

year cycles that take less than

a moment when you're pass-

ing through the gates

of Being and

Becoming

 

History being a record of death

seems appropriate for a culture

hooked on rise and fall and even

that is forgotten in the precious

breath of the moment returning

to this virtual space

 

Denying with our semiotic graffiti

that this life is as thin and as empty

as the photon delineating a letter

from the background

 

in the foreground

a ghost swallows

this thought and all others

Feel as it just passes through.

For me this is the best part that attracted me:

 

History being a record of death

seems appropriate for a culture

hooked on rise and fall and even

that is forgotten in the precious

breath of the moment returning

to this virtual space

 

Dr.Con, your poems always have what to offer on some very interesting poetical way. This poem has a good and strong end also.

 

Much enjoyed.

This is really good, Juris. The "tenthousand year cycles" captured me and evoked a sense of awe like the one one gets when he compares man and his earth with the vastness of the universe. The last verse is sublime:

 

... in the foreground

a ghost swallows

this thought and all others

Feel as it just passes through.

I love it.
