Confinement diary. Day 5

Blue because this period of time is an unusual story.


Song. Allen Ginsberg.


The weight of the world is love.

Under the burden of solitude,

under the burden of dissatisfaction


the weight,

the weight we carry is love.


Who can deny?

In dreams it touches the body,

in thought constructs a miracle,

in imagination anguishes till born

in human--

looks out of the heart burning with purity--

for the burden of life is love,


but we carry the weight wearily,

and so must rest in the arms of love

at last, must rest in the arms

of love.


No rest without love,

no sleep without dreams of love--

be mad or chill

obsessed with angels

or machines,

the final wish is love

--cannot be bitter,

cannot deny, cannot withhold

if denied:


the weight is too heavy


--must give for no return

as thought is given

in solitude

in all the excellence

of its excess.


The warm bodies shine together

in the darkness,

the hand moves to the center of the flesh,

the skin trembles in happiness

and the soul comes joyful to the eye--


yes, yes,

that's what I wanted,

I always wanted,

I always wanted,

to return to the body

where I was born.
