Mirage

A puddle evaporates on a black tar
highway

and a thousand puddles vanish before
we reach the boardwalk

where a toy store sells the inflatable
duck that goes flat in the water.

Arriving and departing seem endless:

we drop until the hand of some strong
god lifts us up and out of this moment

of

confabulation.

Tears are running
They’re all running down your dress
And your friends, baby
They treat you like a guest

The Idea

The most important endeavor is the striving
for morality in our actions. Our inner balance
and even our very existence depend on it.

Only morality in our actions can give beauty
and dignity to life.

Albert Einstein

Four young men with gifts can make a genius
if they have time and resources.
