Uprooting


The intrigues, the twists
unravel the woven threads
of the mystery. Traumatized
and dazed, I play─

dice with the unknown to
find out the truth.

Confronting the purpose
of existence,
you come out of the flesh
after flogging─
and start dancing
with bones.

Extremely poor,
you play the hand
and fail.

Elsewhere someone
climbs on the pole
and sets the house on fire.
