Last Stop

Self-Deceit #1  (Roma) 1977 – 1978, Artist Francesca Woodman


Last Stop

Placated by your parched overtures

Wooed by your smooth-talking tongue
Enticed by devotion
Deserted by emotion


“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”     *

Occitan Sonnet

It’s a new dawn drawn over sparkling seas
It’s a new year of mistakes to be made
It’s a new day of yesterday’s old dreams
It’s a new twilight of yesteryear’s sage
Nothing is holy, nothing as it seems
Nothing is hallow, everything’s the same
Nothing lasts forever, ash to redeem
Nothing ever changes, a crying shame

Do we sadly believe, that’s all there is?
Do we need cleansing, from a Reich Power?
Do we hope for worth, would it be remiss?
Do we just accept what is, and cower?
Do we live again, this time total bliss?
Do we find solace — in our final hour?

“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”     *     *
