Not Poem

not positive nor negative nor neither

not God nor Devil nor either

 

not Buddha nor the road to kill him on

not Harry the horse nor a mermaid’s song

 

not me not you not I not we

not sky nor sense nor being free

 

not tree nor fowl nor cloud of unknowing

not mum nor dad nor not showing

 

up in heaven, hell or in school

not lying down at the bottom of the pool

 

not male nor female nor transvestite

not deadly insight in the dead of night

 

not mellowing nor manically meditating

not lucidly lying nor languidly levitating

 

not full nor empty

not I that’s plenty

 

not I that’s plenty
