We End. We Begin.

by Glenn Currier

7. We End, We Begin

this mediator
invited us to
throttle our trains
into this tunnel
without roads
into this space
where
we spilled our darkness
and made light

I do not adore
this mediator
he is no god
more like a
stagehand
subtracting obstacles
or
casting light
or a
farmer
spreading seeds

this mediator
is no darling
this opener
of wounds
this lover
never flinching
from puss
and spleen
splashed
upon him
this peacemaker
more courageous
than captain
or colonel
more daring
than Evil
infernal

I feel no glee
but more than that
I feel free
no longer hateful
but grateful
for this human being
listening
inviting
feeling
seeing
for all the advents
he is in
for this fresh future
I begin

"Evening came and morning followed - the fifth
day." [Genesis 1:23]
by Glenn Currier

this mediator
daring
summons us
from the seabed
of our cynicism
to storm our souls
to flee
evolution's crawl
to free
the creature
to unleash
our future

born from the depths
we float
we build a boat
we cast our net
we winnow
we harvest
we meet
we breathe

This is the seventh and final installment of a larger poem (also posted
here) that has grown cumulatively over several months - the larger poem is
entitled: THIS MEDIATOR.


The poem is an attempt to describe the reactions and sentiments of a
party in a mediation. Mediation is an emerging profession in North
America in which the mediator assists two or more persons with a
dispute to communicate and to reach an understanding, agreement, or
reconciliation.
