Pascal’s Poetry II: A Prayer to Zarathustra



Happy nihilism –

Ascetic hedonism –

Ecstatic positivism –

Affirmative defeatism –

Suspicious psychologism –

What a staircase

of isms.

What genocidal vitalisms!

What rosary of pain.

What death drive driving

death itself insane.

Yet the virtue of giving

was the virtue of living.

Remember, Zarathustra?

You are not Cain.

Become yourself again.
