Everyone Gets Lighter

Life is lots of presents,

and every single day you get

a big bunch of gifts

under a sparkling pine tree

hung with countless balls of colored lights;

piles of presents wrapped in fancy paper,

the red box with the green ribbon,

and the green box with the red ribbon,

and the blue one with silver,

and the white one with gold.


It’s not

what happens,

it’s how you

handle it.


You are in a water bubble human body,

on a private jet

in seemingly a god world,

a glass of champagne,

and a certain luminosity

and emptiness,

skin of air,

a flat sea of white clouds below

and the vast dome of blue sky above,

and your mind is an iron nail in-between.


It’s not

what happens,

it’s how you

handle it.


Dead cat bounce,

catch

the falling knife,

after endless shadow boxing

in your sleep,

fighting in your dreams

and knocking yourself out,

you realize everything is empty,

and appears as miraculous display,

all are in nature

the play of emptiness and clarity.


Everyone

gets

lighter

everyone

gets lighter

everyone gets

lighter

everyone gets lighter,

everyone is light.



John Giorno (1936-2019)
