There Are Two Ways

by Philip F De Pinto

there are two ways
to look at the sun
as look at a woman's behind

one will blind you
so will the other

and so brother
it is given a blind man
that he shall fall in love
on first touch

in the meanwhile
shut up and listen to yourself

the universe is a blind hen
laying ovules of stars
night after night
hatching light

light intended for the likes of Homer Milton Stevie Wonder and now yourself

such wonder filled beams as are accursed to fly at such speed
as irises cannot contain in their nets nor refrain
such inexorable speed
as they cannot pause to contemplate
and smell the java
