The American dream pure pretense

Pond Song 3.56

 

Certain kinds of life lose us the ‘yes,’ so we must think through the ‘yes’ and its meaning again, live towards it, live in it.  G&B 35.

  

the American dream pure pretense__the people grateful for fireworks

over the pond such oblivion__capitalist green algae perks

 

up the mudflats today you hoo__thank god for lunar tides

and kenotic appearances__a small white egret strides

 

and leaps in a tide pool__in the middle a herring gull

moves not stands at attention__from across the water the pull

 

of a fragrant crab apple tree__this is not the cycle’s bottom

but a return to being’s zero__a yes from outside to become
