The past requires the present to prove its existence

Intertwined concepts stitched at the hip

Witness the artifact and observe the dinosaur bones

It happened but we only believe if you demonstrate it

But a demonstration is the present masquerading as the supposed past

You proved the existence of the now

As you show proof of the then

Walk through that fear

I don’t care if you have to stumble

As though wobbly from a lot of beer

Fumble for the truth and entice that reflection

Prepare to rumble with your assumptions, no affection

For that which leads to the need to fraction

I am on the fringe, but is it because I am unhinged

Or just binge eat trauma and scorn

Am I a product of my environment

Or is a society just a disposable product to me

Is the disdain mutual or is it ‘monkey see; monkey do’

But who started mimicking first…

  1. Asking the real questions. Your poetry is thought-provoking and I appreciate that. I loved how the entire piece was laced with duality and causality problems that are often taken for granted.

    The whole piece is great however my favourite was this part:

    “The past requires the present to prove its existence

    Intertwined concepts stitched at the hip

    Witness the artifact and observe the dinosaur bones

    It happened but we only believe if you demonstrate it

    But a demonstration is the present masquerading as the supposed past

    You proved the existence of the now

    As you show proof of the then”

    It’s one of those verses that says more while saying less. Well penned Ramone.

    • Thanks. I appreciate you taking the time to read.

      I came up with that section of the poem while listening to a person talk about “non-duality.” It is sort of a spiritual teaching.

      I been thinking a lot on things like duality and causality. I find the two concepts connected. Generally if there is a opposite their is some type of blaming going on which is what I view the essence of causality
