Bubble Branes

We float in spheres of loneliness
On pancake-branes so numerous.

Viewing down a sky-bound 'scape,
A microbial colony of working ape.

Trying to better our genetic canvass --
Or, devolving into primitive madness.

Schizophrenic species of love and hate
That builds, creates and burns to berate.

Our children the elders must engage,
To cool the world of its bubbling rage....

It has a feel of a Picasso clock, floating somewhere in space, me sitting on it, observing all those others doing the same, cooling everything down from far above...

Tom, I see good flow, good thought... And the phrase "a microbial colony of working ape" will stick in my lexicon for a full age.

Hi Tom, thank you for stopping by and giving me a pep talk about liqueur and medicinal properties of grass on my “ inebriated” poem. The poem is Rubai. In this style, the wine is divine, and our life is just a small painful portion of our true life. Getting old is bliss, because you are one step closer to the inevitable. I'm neither a drug addict nor alcoholic. I'm just inebriated in the spirit..... Pashang
