Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

A key

Inserted on a doorknob

Cannot turn itself

Someone has to be

It’s turning’s progenitor

What

If indeed a key

Turns a doorknob

By itself?

‘Tis like asking

If a cockroach can

Push an elephant

Or if a gentle breeze can

Knockout a sturdy house

It coheres with the circumstance

When a ball rests and bounces

At the same time

When the slightly probable

Fills the observer’s eyes

As an inescapable vista of verdant forests

Green and lucidly green

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

What ought I write again

On this blank page in front of me?

Blank is my mind as a clear

Tabularasa: empty is the world, a dot

On its circumscribed face

Without an iota of an image

On its being.

Fertile is the night.

Cockroaches dance gaily to proclaim

So. What now would preoccupy

The mind?

Frigid is the pen. It cannot roll on

To herald the hymns and notes

Fervently brewing deep in the vats

Of my inner space: thoughts have receded

Without the usual romance with the pen.

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Break, break through the barrier

Betwixt time and timelessness!

Descend upon Terra’s mortal face!

Nestle in the minds of knowers

Who’ll catch you a-glide!

As to your catchers who know not

One another, perfect strangers

Illuminate them with your radiance!

A holy fire you are and ever

To all men you’re passed a-glow.

That you land on different mortal

Baskets at one time and only one

Is cause enough for bafflement

For both simpleton and erudite.

But your stately arrival exudes greater kingliness

Then the wondrous enigma you’ve aroused

Risen have you from beneath time’s antechambers

To exterminate the nebulae of ignorance.
