Charon's Cosmology

Poem By Charles Simic

Firmly say

I am willing to go an extra mile
if that is intended for a while
nothing can stop me
as I am a free man

but is a thing so easy?
where you do nothing and remain busy too
the dreamers have no place on this earth
they will certainly face untimely death

I may hope or believe
but we have to live
as per the condition
and build the relation

nothing shall take place
until you make the frantic chase
you may find critical phase
but that has to be made at an ease

being the human
doesn't mean
you are not prone to an excuses
as it will make you miss many things

so, decide and resolve
you got to solve
many things that are likely on the way
you must have the firm say

Against Winter

The truth is dark under your eyelids.
What are you going to do about it?
The birds are silent; there's no one to ask.
All day long you'll squint at the gray sky.

Eyes Fastened With Pins

How much death works,
No one knows what a long
Day he puts in. The little
Wife always alone

Country Fair

for Hayden Carruth

If you didn't see the six-legged dog,
It doesn't matter.

Errata

Where it says snow
read teeth-marks of a virgin
Where it says knife read
you passed through my bones

Paradise Motel

Millions were dead; everybody was innocent.
I stayed in my room. The President
Spoke of war as of a magic love potion.
My eyes were opened in astonishment.

Watermelons

Green Buddhas
On the fruit stand.
We eat the smile
And spit out the teeth.
