The Comfort of Cycles

fear
the
greatest fear
is
irreversible change
change
cyclic and benign
is comfortable
implying long-term changelessness that human
beings labor to find


Found poetry from Isaac Asimov’s short story collection ‘Robot Visions’ page 437 essay ‘The Machine and the Robot’

***

Afternoon cicada’s sing    
summer‘s fleeting illusions.  
Walking home, foot-sore.

War

by L-Inque

Sorry?  
…should have thought  
of that  
back in the days  
when youth  
was in full bloom.  
We had time  
to change our ways,  
room to change our minds,  
the chance to change our hearts.

Wouldn’t it be nice if  
War was confined to  
only existing in books?  
Maybe then  
You and I as Legions  
would have a way to settle
our differences, sparing the inevitable  
innocent by-stander casualties.  
Releasing future generations  
from this blood soaked bitter legacy.

First strike warning:  My poised pen.  
Where is your bravado now?

The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.

     repeat from the impossible cool.

It’s like you took a bottle of ink and you threw it at a wall. Smash! And all that ink spread. And in the middle, it’s dense, isn’t it? And as it gets out on the edge, the little droplets get finer and finer and make more complicated patterns, see? So in the same way, there was a big bang at the beginning of things and it spread. And you and I, sitting here in this room, as complicated human beings, are way, way out on the fringe of that bang. We are the complicated little patterns on the end of it. Very interesting. But so we define ourselves as being only that. If you think that you are only inside your skin, you define yourself as one very complicated little curlique, way out on the edge of that explosion. Way out in space, and way out in time. Billions of years ago, you were a big bang, but now you’re a complicated human being. And then we cut ourselves off, and don’t feel that we’re still the big bang. But you are. Depends how you define yourself. You are actually—if this is the way things started, if there was a big bang in the beginning— you’re not something that’s a result of the big bang. You’re not something that is a sort of puppet on the end of the process. You are still the process. You are the big bang, the original force of the universe, coming on as whoever you are. When I meet you, I see not just what you define yourself as—Mr so-and- so, Ms so-and-so, Mrs so-and-so—I see every one of you as the primordial energy of the universe coming on at me in this particular way. I know I’m that, too. But we’ve learned to define ourselves as separate from it.
