swtf is consciousness

by Peter Greene

illustrated by rhoda penmarq

so  what  the  fuck  is  consciousness 

it's an intruder
on the scene - you see it
in the eyes of deer, and in the 
of ants,  and you  wonder  at it  in
birds (owls)

or woodbugs.   You   stare  in the   mirror,look
into  your  eyes and it's like
meeting  a dog's gaze · someone
to look away

 You see it   as a fire, on  a  hilltop , in   the  distance
 you see it in the moon and
howl for the dead  defenseless rocks that cannot see that
