Power in Paganini Audio Poem with Music & Text by Robin Ouzman Hislop

Power

what is the concept of power
an emergent world power
shaping the world
from the sweep of history
the making of me
the what i am
the where i come from
to the mind of me
the making of the mind of me
to which the mind of me
must agree
with the yes of me
what is this concept of power
the movement of the world
to the movement of our specie
to the yes of the power of the word
made world
but the concept of economy
the mass mobilisation of a labour force
in its production
& control of a resource
that makes the world of me become
& to which i must Kao Tao
– submit
without option
my mind
made up for me
& if I say no
if I say yes to my no
it is meaningless in the face
in the might of the power to be
& throughout time
our brief time
humankind
has gone to war
against tyranny
& invasion
in the name of freedom
& gain
only to become
the tyrant again
such is the world’s religion
& so I am left
with my meaningless
yes to my no
& the absurdity of my existence
my made unmade mind
before the power of might is right
who knows
what the future may hold
Africa India China Brazil
may rise like phoenix from the ashes
in their struggle for control
& that is their answer
whosoever
whatsoever is in control
controls forever the mind
but no one is in control
no one will ever be in control
& as long as our species
perpetuates
its existence on this planet
it will never be in control
in less than 200 years
after
our disappearance
from the planet
nature would remove
all trace of human
civilisation
even the great wall of China
as a final remnant
would probably be covered
in lichen & fungi
with only the head
of the Dragon
in the sea
its back in the mountains
& its tail in the desert

Water & Time An Audio Poem with Text by Robin Ouzman Hislop

 
 

 
 

Water&Time

shortage

shotdown

shutdown

in our

short age

water&time

buy

and sell

the sky

eat drink

& be merry

for tomorrow

we buy

new oil

blue gold

POD

in the Hub

& pull the plug

dip your toes

in the flow

& watch

the money

grow

water water

everywhere

up for auction

like health care

in

competetive

water wealth

as you

float

on your back

in your

swimming pool

& stare

into

the unending

reach

of space

as if it were

a resource

in nature’s

supermarket

to buy

& sell

the price

of life

drop

by drop

into

the algorithm

where we’re

waiting in line

standing in

the queue

of shortage

in our

short age

water & time

Voyeur An Audio Poem with Text by Robin Ouzman Hislop

Voyeur

voyeur
celebrant
what?

yesterday’s
tommorrows?
elergys for

graveyards?
odes o’er
cribs

with desert
blue
left in turn

by
desert hue
night & day

carrying
a tent
until oasis

befriending
mirages
wayside

such that
we are
the world

& you
the same
instant

watch it
disintergrate
further

fringes
from
apperceptions

drop drop
dropping
into chasms

words
that tumble
& clink

onto
their
echoes

yet
voyeur
far

wherever
that
still is

listening
as waves
moan

a future
setting
them

free from
the sea
unto

horizons
disappearing
before

reach
but that
still

define
precipice
as

waiting
through
the shore

sheer
before
fall

Dark Sea An AudioTextualPoem by Robin Ouzman Hislop

 

                                                                 

                                                                  Dark Sea

What can steal on the march of time

time that has passed time that is to come

on the dark sea of matter

within & without

gravitating       gravitating       gravitating

language is barely sufficient for it

in our mortal transit

in a universe which is forever a phantom face

its unresolved visitations

                                                  touched & untouched

                                                                          my cat mind                    my dog mind

as different as                                      chalk & cheese

it calls for a comment on our mysterious cosmos

in its great indifference to us

which we inhabit rather miraculously more than

the mere mathematics of matrix & fractal

but as self regulating networks together

with the brainless networks

where we may spread our membranous wings

& harvest angels on the dark sea                            within & without
