Tabula rasa

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

 

Irretrievable

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
