lyrics

It never came!
My eyes spent hours
focused on the open page,
but nothing arranged in me;
there was no imagery
to save our shrinking sun
from death.

“It’s not enough!”,
my patron yelled,
“It does not show or inspire,
renege or reach higher!”
I’d given up;
sick of allegories,
I conceded my uselessness
in the verse I recite.

How he cursed and he trembled,
said: “It teaches us nothing!” 
(and he was right),
“How does it bring us closer:
the dismissal of meaning
before the freezing pyre?

It is a vast sea of blackness
—no stories are told,
the stars don’t wink or fall
beyond your beside—
and my personal canvas,
no vain presumption
to speak for someone,
resolve or deny.

Is it not enough
to bury conclusions
and embrace unknowing?
For those with fixed sights,
to whom all else is lies,
the conflict of visions
is a means to an end.

Mistaken, we are tempted
to draw running water
from an unknown.

**

The system is greying;
Master rallies and wails
—clutching, weeping—
I sigh.
