A poem by: Ben Dunk. November 11, 1970.




Matter does not matter

Excepting the matter of moment

Matter is relevant in space and time existence

The matter-what is the matter

And matter is purulent

Only matter is in the immediate

Matter is printed

Matter is mailed

Matter is fact

Matter is speech

Matter is trouble

Matter forms us

We deform in matter

Yet nothing really matters

Does anything matter

Yes this moment matters

The matter of the present

So called because it is a gift.
