RESPECT FOR THE MECHANISM

As long—
and just about 

as surely—
as the pale rocky 
world has been turning,

we too 
have kept busy—wandering about
in widening ellipses

and diligently screwing
our flush flaming 
lush funny faces 

up toward 
Heaven—until we're dizzy.

Hell-
bent!—not on discerning 

whether or not
there's really any such thing
as either of those places—let alone

whether we require 
a place 
for either of those things moving forward—

but rather,
on repeating—

and thereby trying
to memorize the feeling—
of looking.
