Journey to the West (in honor of Herman Hesse)

Journey to the West

this sightly, seemly road

we’ve

set out upon: at times

most

bewitching, at others merely

a dull trudging, day

to similar day, no new thing done nor mountain known,

one unrefreshed, thirsting

for some unnameable liquid. (let us state, for the

record, that Lamb’s blood and milk left only that

thirst)

at times, to the side

of our path,

or before, we can see

shapes,

vague intimations of some goal, or ending-place.

…Shapes that sway

in the fog of a moonless night; peripheral phantoms,

never quite visible, straight on.

At times i think the journey means more than its end.

Without this shifting, dimly-seen path–where would we

go?
