Jonathan Beale ~ The fleeting life-blood

The world is made of parts, dripping this way and away
A linear of discovery and undiscovered
Unlike the platonic Meno
Tectonic plates fragmented
Idling this way

And as this birth rite is forgotten, designed to be forgot
In bloodied child birth screams
The consistent accident
The easy path is trodden, trodden.
Down. Leaving

The world’s paradise eternally hidden to temp and tease
Reflected in the lustre of William Blake
Hear the golden arrow
As it cut the air & fills the ear
Before it passes
