Absurdity Posing as Wisdom

“The signs of the world are such that nothing triumphs
but evil, which is forever negligible, posing as nonsense
to scions of reason whose veins throb with rejection’s
anger, but must recall their mission is to nullify stupidity
which is too late now to consider, the land overgrown
with atavists. Which will it be, my love, seed or orgasm
only? A need to be completely human, the hunger of age,
of men not women, the power dissipating between them
until love is word only, you have to believe facts of death
end only in the urn or the grave, or so say life’s rules.”

Pedro la Ponce
