Poetry: Rebellion Sun(shine)

Rebellion Sunshine
A world of light
in a world of dark.
The way that they are asleep
is the way
that you are awake.
The things that are alive
for them
are guitar strings smartly plucked
…for you
silent chords.

You are never going to believe
what happened to me
on the way to my grave.
But stick around.
I’ll spend my life
trying to explain it.

Only in retrospect
only in retrospect
only in retrospect
will we see
how learning happens
only through redundancy
and
only in retrospect.

Our skin has to become
loose
upon the bones
before arrogance
will stretch
out and relax, recline…
into a repose of humility.

Our minds must meet
their match
and burn
entirely
before the heart
extinguishes
the center
of all that drives
all that doing.

It is the mind that burns.
It is the heart that shines.
Rebellion.
Sun.
Shine.
