More mumbling into the void ...

And, here's another poem/reading ...


                    AT THE FOCUS POINT OF SPITE


                    1
                    drastic arrangements
                    of movement through time,
                    complexities twisting
                    creating textures,
                    Gordian weaves
                    obscuring the vectors
                    underlying patterns
                    fleshing out these days
                    2
                    yet unable
                    to move beyond
                    the shackles' hold,
                    these chains persist,
                    our isolation
                    cycles in pasts
                    whose pain yet calls
                    as sweeter than these aches
                    3
                    we see the failings,
                    the empty zones
                    which have no filling,
                    no matter our intent;
                    we see the weakness
                    which spreads like dusk,
                    sweeping darkness
                    clear across the globe
                    4
                    broken season,
                    hours collapse
                    and bring down days,
                    all is chaos
                    and crumbled dreams,
                    a wasted matrix
                    of what was not
                    and what might still not be
                    5
                    insanity yet eludes,
                    neither sane nor mad,
                    native nor alien,
                    we roll through middle zones
                    not angel, not demon,
                    not fully of the human clan,
                    estranged from all sides
                    at the focus point of spite

It looks like I just have one more on that diskette, so I'll either have to go digging for other things not posted here (I really do need to get this stuff organized, as it's currently floating between three computers), or actually get some new stuff written!
