repeat performances…

copyright cwmartin 2012

i
asked
aunt bea
if she believed
in
reincarnation
she stared
out the window
listening
to the city’s sounds
sighed
and said
i can’t believe
that there is a god
so cruel
as to make us
go through all
this
again

  1. This reminds me of Camus’ ‘The Myth of Sisyphus’ and the cruel gods, who inflicted upon the man the torture of repeating his pointless upwards struggle over and over again. If the same is happening to us, it is a blessing that, unlike Sisyphus, we are at least spared the memories of suffering of our previous lives.

  2. true that.. smiles…love how you build up tension with aunt bea looking out of the window…i sat..thinking…what..? what…? what will she say…but i knew it would be good and it was…smiles
