Poetry ... not syching well with the LJ

Yeah, I've been writing a bit ... again, not as much as I had hoped ... have not been able to get into a regular shedule. Also, since I'm not doing these (generally speaking) at the computer, there's the transcription issue to deal with as well. (heavy sigh) Anyhoo ... here (and following) are some more poems.




                    DISJOINTED WAYS



                    1
                    no one becomes
                    entire
                    nothing becomes
                    whole
                    we cycle through absences
                    awaiting arrivals
                    in stations of completion
                    set with the symbols
                    of ancient final states

                    2
                    only the titles remain
                    the forms have shifted
                    and can not be accessed
                    their immersion slides
                    into vague recall
                    in which we know
                    but can not be
                    and where we were
                    but are no more

                    3
                    now blurred
                    held with remorse
                    the sense of loss
                    hangs heavy in the day
                    there are no edges
                    at which to tear
                    just mass constricting
                    bringing pressure
                    and dread to bear
