'Zenning'  2007 DK McDonald
Zenning

Zenning into the core
of every moment,
moment by moment,
hour by year, year by decade,
seeing Amazonas
water liliypads,
huge water Buffalos
and a naked black African-Brazilian
girl, the Urubamba River,
vultures eating
fish-guts, wharves at Belén
my wife’s face going from 20
to 80 in as long as it takes
to write these lines.

LE PAIX -- Museum Mark Aurele Fortin

Le paix, le paix,
le paix, je suis
Muselman-Juif,
Chretienne-Athée
come vous voulez, mais
quel importe, les arbres,
le ciel, un peu de Satie dans
l’air, les saisons changent,
les jambs, les seins, les visages,
toute reviennt archaeologiques,
les os dans les tombes,
les maisons en ruines,
les toits,les vieux moutins,
le paix que sourit

Peace, peace,
peaces, I’m Moslem-Jew,
Christian-Atheist, whatever
you want, but what’s the difference,
the trees, the seasons change,
the legs, the breasts, the faces,
everything becomes archaeological,
bones in tombs,
the houses in ruins,
the roofs, the old mills,
smiling peace
remains.

SUDDENLY

Brusquement toute devient
les chevaux au vent,
les nouvelles feuilles,
notre peau,
un moment blanc,
le prochain noir,
jaune,
les theologies de antiquité (presque)
(mais vraiment pas si antique)
abandonnéss pour modeler/former
notre propre théologie de
toutes les marraines, nous dans
l’universe
fait de notre peu et os.


Suddenly everything becomes hair in the
wind, the new leaves, our skin, one moment
white, the next black, yellow, escaping the theologies
of (almost) antiquity (but not really that antique)
to form our own theology made
our of goddesses,
ourselves in the universe made out of our own skin
and bones.
