Feeling them pass through that small moment--
Floating through a high, small window …
Of things that come and go,
Transiently, like birds that come and go …
And the sun’s light we feel as if feeling it for the first time.
We don’t question the sun’s light.
What’s there to question … ?
Because our selves,
Which are children,
Are children …
That’s why the hills are hills
And the grass is grass;
And seeing hills and grass
For what it is--
In the wind and hot sun--
With the children of our whole lives,
We become unaware … gradually, more gradually.
SE2OND is a poet, lawyer and founder of a game design and development company called SE2OND, based out of New York. His first chapbook, which will be published later this year by AuthorHouse Publishing, is a collection of musings and reflections on a quest for an almost conscious unconsciousness—to see without having sight, to touch without grasping, and in the end, to think without thoughts, and to exist without self. To have or to be? This is the central question of his work.
