Something or Nothing?


I said to myself, “Don’t do it again.”

Again, to myself, I said, “Don’t – don’t again.”

And then once again and again to myself,

I said, “Not again – not by myself.”


Only with someone and never with no one.

No one with someone makes no one someone

as someone with no one makes someone no one,

thus with no one I search for someone

until once again that no one is someone.


As day turns into night, so too does night turn into day,

thus everything is a part of everything

and nothing is constant.

The rock of today is the life of tomorrow,

and the life of today is the rock of tomorrow.


May – June 1987
