One of Twelve

Oooh, how Borg ... 1of12 ... tee-hee!

These are going to be even more confusing, since I'm starting with the latest (hey, wrote this one today!) and working backwards to mid-July. You have to read all these, so clear some time and get out the hankies.

                    FRAGMENTS OF INTENT

                    the emptiness erupts
                    across hours
                    across days and weeks
                    we stand with nothing
                    but fragments of intent
                    and this wonder
                    of how all things
                    have slipped away
                    nothing patterns
                    to the form
                    we stack the wind
                    and spin the sand
                    all disappearing
                    at the last
                    unable to sustain
                    a vision of its shape
                    how lost are we
                    that nothing molds
                    into these frames?
                    we have lost all purpose,
                    been stripped of night,
                    and now are losing day
                    in swirling fogs
                    and unproductive haze
                    we blankly stare
                    at the parade
                    not connecting
                    with anything outside
                    still unable
                    to be in time
                    or in synch with
                    the outer world

                    all these lists, these plans,
                    are meaningless;
                    nothing we seek
                    has means to bloom
                    in the mundane,
                    nothing we need
                    is there for us
                    in the realm of man
