Beyond the Cartesian Lens

by Victor Cypert

Man and doe caught
like a snapshot
—parameterized,
….denuded,
……….depicted—
two dimensions
in phase:
wolves versus rabbits,
predator
and prey.

The model eloquent,
simple, perfect
whorls about
the invisible
core of being
and non-being.

The Tao reveals
Herself to me,
Shekinah in
the tranquil eye
staring beyond me
—staring back
…..through the scope.

What lowers the rifle,
…..abandons
…..the quest on
…..satisfaction’s
…..cusp,
can no longer
be called
…..by name.
