Coming Towards an Eternal Orgasm
By Marian Glaser © December, 1997
We show only part of what we are.
Inside each human a world of memory masses,
making each unique.
We never know when we’ll stumble
on a beach complete with
fish, sunsets, Athena freshly sprung
from Zeus’s head,
Venus floating on her shell,
able to see the cliffs and rose trellised bungalows.
Outside each human a silken iridescent gossamer
extends, interlinks, mingles.
Soul or aura?
We hope to be
unfolded in eternity,
showing our multi-coloured wings
We may experience a mystic union,
an eternity long orgasm.
Our fragile earthly bodies
Even toothaches can overwhelm us.
Generations of work
add up to one project
while fear and doom loom
threatening to unravel
where we struggle to climb this steep, thorny
road to freedom.
Our physical energy leaves us
before we can achieve what we envisage:
a peaceful, loving world
full of trees, grass, flowers, crystal water and
beautiful people and animals
while unstinging insects fly
and birds perch, nest, soar.
Luckily each generation
has its visionaries adding
their bricks to the design.
