Moon About Town



He utters sounds of love
Painful ambition not easily thwarted
Driven forward onto passion’s spike

To drown in her body’s well
Breaching at last her trembly dike.


She waits his demands
Embracing pain while true to herself
Still and closed to all else about her

Compliant with his urging needs
Assuring he will never be without her.

Narcissistic happy.

Optimism is a mental attitude or world view that interprets situations and events as being best (optimized), meaning that in some way for factors that may not be fully comprehended, the present moment is in an optimum state. The concept is typically extended to include the attitude of hope for future conditions unfolding as optimal as well. The more broad concept of optimism is the understanding that all of nature, past, present and future, operates by laws of optimization along the lines of Hamilton’s principle of optimization in the realm of physics. This understanding, although criticized by counter views such as pessimismidealism and realism, leads to a state of mind that believes everything is as it should be, and that the future will be as well. A common idiom used to illustrate optimism versus pessimism is a glass with water at the halfway point, where the optimist is said to see the glass as half full, but the pessimist sees the glass as half empty.
