Food for Thought-Excommunicated Fragments — September 18, 2015

Food for Thought-Excommunicated Fragments


Now bequeathed to us,
The divine figment,
Standing against otherness,
Thirsting for self-evident,
Obvious memes,
Waiting to respond,
To the radical claims,
Of blank stares,
And nods untold,
While we wait,
Begging to find,
Excommunicated fragments,
Of the resurrected idea,
Asking the wise men,
“Is my life not a sign?”
Among the broken flaps,
Of a pitched tent,
A homemade,
Indwelling logos,
In the neighborhood,
Where drunken beatings,
Of an innocent child
Did occur,
In a place called here,
When the watch says now,
On a Good Friday,
Last Tuesday afternoon.

Food for Thought-Что делать? — September 16, 2015

Food for Thought-Что делать?


What Is to Be Done?

Who are You?
I am me,
Every evening,
I ask,
Where are you?
I love you,
My one,
Dying star.

–Richard Bryant

Что делать?

Кто ты?
Я – это я,
Каждый вечер,
Я спрашиваю,
Где ты?
Потому что,
Я люблю тебя,
Mой oдин,
Умирающая звезда .

Ричард Брайант

Food for Thought-The Nightly Imposition of Death — September 2, 2015

Food for Thought-The Nightly Imposition of Death


I am not waiting to say goodbye,
I will not bid farewell to the sunlight,
No longer will I pay my respect,
To the nightly imposition of death,
The vibrant colors of mortality,
Have been released from my awe,
Light beyond the day,
Defy the coming night,
And mourn no more,
For the blind echoes of dawn,
Grasp the craggy horizon.

–Richard Bryant

Food for Thought-A Metaphor to Change —
Food for Thought-I Began To Weep — September 1, 2015

Food for Thought-I Began To Weep


On a simple night,
In a room small,
Through the door,
I crawled,
Battered black,
Seething blue,
Just there,
Inside the hall,
By the stairs,
The rain came round,
Turning left by the door,
Finally ready,
To fall with sound,
On my shoes
Where white carpet,
By my feet,
To never come clean,
They wondered,
“Was I alright?”
On the edge of the floor,
I began to weep.

–Richard Bryant

Food for Thought-The Cosmos Isn’t Broken — August 9, 2015

Food for Thought-The Cosmos Isn’t Broken


My nighttime dreams,
Are not dark,
though mainly cold,
usually unseen,
I feel them,
Even asleep,
As questions first,
Gnawing at me,
To don my socks,
Quench my thirst,
Turn on the light,
Repeat the mantra,
Without waking my wife,
“The cosmos isn’t broken,
You’ll be alright”,
before dawn arrives,
and Coleman Hawkins
saxophone slides,
below the raucous
seams of seamless sound,
and night dies,
on morning ground.
