“I love you,” said Phillip; “I’ll miss you TOO much,💜💜💜

“THE PRAGMATIST’S CALL!” a poem a.k.a.: “The Stoic’s Credo!” a.k.a.: “How To Remain Pragmatic In The Most Emotional Circumstances!” August 13, 2018 MONDAY, Lisa.

BUDDHIST “ATTACHMENT!” Yes, Buddhist! Ha, ha –

Attachment! – to girlfriend – fam’ly-pet – or papa,

Or attachment – to structure – or fond memories,

Or going to Paris – or visiting The Trees!

Energy? Particles?! Bouncing – around,

Attachment to HER – HIM – or IT – that you found?

“I love you,” said Phillip; “I’ll miss you TOO much,

IF-you-de-materialize – IF we can not touch!

Energy-is-malleable – it-can-be-anything,

Not created-or-destroyed – re-arrangement can bring,

THAT PURE, SPECIAL SOMEONE, you can’t do without,

And, IF you just can’t – (pause) with attachment, you’ll pout.

IF-you-notice transformation, or apparent dissolving,

Energy’s-just-energy; lose-your-sense(s)-and-you’re-solving –

The-Problem-of-Attachment, BUT-with-senses-intact,

Won’t you just always – seem to – just-RE-ENACT,

Another-energy-structure – that you so enjoy,

That you-CAN’T-LIVE-WITHOUT-(it) – it’s YOUR GIRL – or YOUR BOY?

We’re all taught to treasure – the structures we see,

Of feel, taste and touch, ‘cause they’re you and they’re me!?

WITHOUT ALL THOSE SENSES, YOU AIN’T GOT MUCH SENSE,

But! You-do-lose-attachment! Why-not sit on “the fence?”

And hold on lightly – and don’t let go?

‘Til-the-structure(s)-dissolve(s);

And-you-can-say: “Ho, ho, ho?!”

DO YOU KNOW OR CAN-YOU-GUESS THAT THE ENERGY YOU LOVE – IS SOON TO MATERIALIZE INTO ANOTHER-SILKEN-GLOVE?

Well, you-can-always LOVE EVERYTHING – OR NOTHING AT ALL,

Forgive and/or Forget – is The Pragmatist’s

Call! 🙂
