The Problem with the Present

A young man
Who writes for
A website

Has written
An essay
On Ludwig

Quoting him
As noting

“Death is not
An event
Within life.”

This opens
On being

Wholly here,
No inner

Oh, always this
Hymn of blissful
Present, without

Yes, the inner
Narrator lies
To terrorize.
Yes, stories lie.

Yes, we torment
Ourselves with thought.
Yes, the world is
Richly voiceless.

No, there is no
Eternal peace
In the present.
Presence hungers.
