Looking Up

Cover of Planet of the Blind....man and dog....

I am a blind star gazer. Sometimes, looking up I see lights. Sometimes I think I’m imagining them. In any case, this is the condition of the first people on earth.

I take this feeling with me into the house. Clutching a spoon I’m the first spoon man. Yes I made it at home with a private forge.

Don’t you know there are wonders in the ordinary room?

Sure. Tell me to go to hell. You’ve got big things on your mind.

Here I am with my Sanskrit dust mote eyes and imaginary stars.
