I Speak Silence, Nothingness and Neutral-Language
and “understanding” is not cactus.
Words fool you and leave you insatiate
fog of signs and syllogisms
blinds you to lower-order images, opinions
and fast-food philosophies
smart-phones and presidential debates;
Language, a cup of caffe Mediterranean,
some Wikipedia pages on mother internet
or the pornographic short-cut pleasure route.
The word “Love” is not Love,
nor the word “God” is God,
into the binaries of subject and object
and other countless dualities
on the follow-up for free;
Deep down, in a sleazy way
language recreates an ego-self
of our own ephemeral cosmos
we cling to the veil, run on the false-alarms
and forget the reality of Christ within.
Wolfgang Pauli once dreamt
of “Neutral Language.” A seamless
grammar for both matter and the mind.
It hits the spot for me. Maybe I am
also a neutral linguist at my honest best,
talking simpler than a nursery rhyme.
Non-Thought and Other Meaningful Blanks
greener than the greenest green
on the molecule-wheels of river silver
all limpid and clear; silt of ground pearls,
dusted lapis-lazuli on its bends and bed;
And the spark of my non-mind
blinds all the earthly sights.
I regain unconscious, suddenly I wake up
in the non-thought wonderland; Philosophies are
burnt to pieces, religions are crucified.
Teachers and preachers! Take a leave today
my thought is my original sin
it’s none of you peoples’ business.
Irrational…is me. Yet I am
the omniscient one; Frail…I am
like a dew drop, dancing precariously
on the thinnest grass. Yet I am the protean one
the dew drop, reflecting countless cosmos
Existence is pain, Existence in vain
yet a magic in itself; a Dionysian feast
when you don’t see it, the way you are taught
but be it on its entirety;
And when you hold it, all naked
an awareness of a carnal unity
Standing tall on the relics
of thoughts, scriptures and dead Gods.
