one who waits

(256 / Earth)


Mass frustration
Feeling grim

Pen etration
Walls within

A clerical error
Is all that it takes
To numb a mind beyond
That shadow of a doubt
Or reasonable doubt

Fundamental preparation
Is all I know

Proli feration
Abort a nation
Spilling things we never see

Afro Asian
Eleva tion
Simple insertion

Bill it any way you wanna
It’s still just a song for me

    The words come up in strong patterns of stress with rhythmic variations that function as dramatic levers of tension. This seemingly relentless rhythm projects both a strong sense of urgency and indignation at the many ways concepts and words become the means of our psychological and spiritual alienations, our “incarceration.”

    That language, which was born as a liberator of the human race, becomes the means of imprisonment is both pathetic and sad. That poetry may also be the way out of this alienation is significant and hopeful.

    Very well worked out. (Report) Reply
