Rainy day

Rainy day

To live forever, our selves desire.
Yet, mortality is illusion,

per the Masters,
as are all such objects -

inherently erroneous;
the one true deficiency

being the blot of our desiring self,
its erasure all we lack

in the quest from nowhere to nowhere,
our timeless, motionless passage

an entertainment, a false relief
from God's idle, eternal limbo;

a brief distraction
during a rainy day, shut-in afternoon.

O child of God, whimsicality and pretense
run the gamut of all existence.
