Poems by Joanne Kyger

Emptiness

         `EMPTINESS IS THE THING WE ARE FULL OF'

`AND EVERYTHING YOU SEE IS EMPTY, FULL OF IT
              PACKED FULL OF EVERYTHING EMPTY

AND WE ARE IN IT THAT'S WHAT WE EXPERIENCE
THE GREAT AND MANIFEST AND UNBORN LIVE CHAOS

OKAY.     THAT'S ENOUGH.     THANK YOU.'

                         -Uttered by the Great Dragon Wind
                                of Universal Influence Philip Whalen
