Tabula rasa

tabularasa Prismatic-Waves-Starburst-Psychedelic


Brutal happenings

Dissolution of a life

Identity swept


Right off the gridlines

Not a temporary stance

A move off the dance


Five six seven eight

The exercise continues

Replacement dons shoes


Four three two and one

Count no more for it is done

The clock ticks onward



The resolutions taken

In past extensions


Pour me a nightcap

Resolutions lack resolve

When ceilings cave in


Oceans covered din

Thunders of a hundred waves

Sealed the leaking tap


Trains and boats sink fast

The fish venture unabashed

Reverse aquarium


Meek summer nights stall

My quaking communication

A guilt to recall


The water the fall

Can you see what I must see

Blinding waterfall


Disconnected straits

Bridges of desolation

Pathways for the dead


They crawl slow around

Inconsolable white light

The sob heaving chest


The city crushes

The will of bleak emptiness

I yearn for forests


Within the jungle

Only one kind of law rules

No constricted schools


Unmanned the learning

When the forests are burning

All animals flee


When all are equal

In problems solutions lie

The friend in rival


Give me the blind eye

Let me treasure ignorance

That seeps as I sigh


Humanity’s pains

Grit my teeth shatter my bones

Survival in clones


Twirl me a new leaf

Grant me renunciation

Turn me the tables


Tabula rasa

When all is said and undone

Back to the square one
