Villanelle: The Poietics of Being

Villanelle : The Poietics* of Being

This World and All that we see and cannot
   Came into being without warning 
With its Past and Future replete with plot

There’s no such thing as the Present in slot
   For there’d be no one to see in Yijing*
This World and All that we see and cannot
 
Those that want to see this World in their cot
   Give it incomplete myth and beginning
With its Past and Future replete with plot

That’s why it’s endless and far too way out
   Made to elude any true mind’s probing
This World and All that we see and cannot
 
Break this eternal chain: the sexual knot
   And the Yang will allay the Yin binding
With its Past and Future replete with plot

No Heaven will be claimed by senseless clot
   Mindless matter will then clash clang and cling
This World and All that we see and cannot
 With its Past and Future replete with plot
