Exiled On Mountain, Bewail Fate & Praise Autumn Analysis



Author: poem of Jon Anderson Type: poem Views: 7

Now that I'm actually living my solitude I'm clueless.

Every now & then the wind drops in & I look at it.

These are the signs of seasonal change: I'm not sweating,

& the hollow air in the chimney makes a thrumming noise.

The doves outside my house look like they're waiting

at a bus stop & puff into little black & grey pots when

the wind blows or when the rain comes down in columns.

Now that it's quiet in my house I can't really think

without thinking & I can't really talk without meaning

something else, so I shut up. Some days I wish I was

back at the factory, moving heavy objects & grunting.



They start out looking for a handout, then they get used to it,

the birds. What's weird is I think they don't know why

they come anymore, now that I've stopped feeding them.

Frankly, they tend to be undifferentiated & cutely stupid.

Once, when one fell off the wall, I thought I had something,

it was so embarrassed, lying there like a ruffled pompom

with a black tack for a head. Turned out it was dead.

I was so alienated I mailed it back without a stamp, but

I said this prayer for it: Bless every living thing...



I didn't mean to exclude it.



Shortly afterward I was bombed by a traveling flock

of chickadees fresh from a meeting on a rotten stump.

When you're alone every damn word you say has got

to be how you feel, & then you've got to live with it.

I think I'll entertain myself by not experiencing anything.

Word on the mountain is that the wabi of consciousness

is all your living minus all your accumulated experience.

That's why the chickadees attacked, because I'd blown it.
