• Seeker, I

    From out the fluorescent homogenous lie
    To the ubiquitous script of pen's pride,
    Born to give, yet still a cup dry;
    To learn, to love, the Seeker, I

When My Daughter Brought The Real

I had a baby the other day. This is such an odd thing for a man to say, and yet I am able to say it in all sincerity. I think the fact that such a strange phrase rolls so easily off the tongue and conscience is because I’ve discovered the process of labor and … Continue reading

look! how the loner conquers! not a loner for forsaking, but for the sake of truth, conquers. under the blood-shot glare of wild-eyed hosts who scream as one for blood. their veins are highways burning plasma, protruding, with bursting faces indignant and self-justified, screaming. and cursing-hands, tossing contagion, flicking. but says the loner not a … Continue reading

An Ode to Envy

Envy, I hate you. under chameleonic guise you slither. like the Crawling Things created and put under authority, yet still one allowed to enter unimpeded, unrestricted, unexecuted, thus you enter — as if the old man still lives, as if an ally you will find — whispering false accusations in, to and against all humankind. … Continue reading

a clue not for clue’s sake but for intention’s convergence: telos. reverberates somewhere unsaid from without, inside, unexplained by the most sophisticated double-blind. unknown stimuli, network relations converging in intuition, and give birth to a great anxiety. then within, a yearning to understand. wherefrom this unease? call it by name. this its imperative! a name … Continue reading

the sudden silence from Roccasecca, of Dominican, of Aquino is heavy: “mihi videtur ut palea.” what reply be offered? the one from Aosta, of Bec, of Canterbury echoes still: “I seek your face; your face, I seek.” has his weight been lifted? who wants to know “cur deus homo?” there is a man from Thagaste, … Continue reading

Shadow Sea
