BLAKEAN REPROSE
by Alex Bastianini

 

 

 

Blakean reprose

there’s a giggling babe
with a face full of life
she tells a young old tale
of where we came and
what we were born
she tells a young old tale
of fears not yet with form
and without words articulate
in a state of innocent bliss
with a mother’s love her own
she tells a young old tale

 

 

 

 

The trapeze ego

There is no right or wrong answer
it’s a resonance between two decisions.

This can be just as encouraging as it is frightening
because the trapeze act
is a display no more than of suspense.
the trapezist knows the decision
except the superego incites angst.

The tightrope’s wrangle
is the uncertainty of
the other’s response
that may be predetermined, by
teeters of the subconcious:
stirring rage, wonder and longing, each
in direct conflict of another.
ambiguously resonating,
a mystery of compassion,
or is it undetermined?

This is the daring performance
the id plays for the self.
