direction and perspective.



I stand with my face to the south

there is no sound outside my mind

running away in commentary and

despite wanting to belong


multicolored diagrams flash

vicariously on digital screens

the view is seldom clarity and

I am a rose colored spectacle


to my left there is nothing new

one more anecdotal plan in

a stack of rickety configurations

I often lean on tenuous framework


I wait for cracks to give way to light

time is a sodden beast heaving a burden

always chasing its own end

I wonder if I have always been weary
