Asterisk


And poetry, active dreaming,
should I remind you,
and remember again

that it is as obsolete
to talk about primacy
as it is about elevation

for both are equally confused
in this interreferential mass
that encompasses even nothing,
yes, and to make it all magical,
and why not

for that the abstract symbols do allow for
and can't take away from the world

that is clearly not what poiesis is for  

nor is a razor the tool
to discover the interconnectedness
of everything

for the technology defines the process
the same way the measurement device
limits the scope of findings

(no parenthesis)

Isolation as a method
lets us understand
solitude,

the meaning of singularity,
always alone

severed from the connections
that could provide context and meaning
– and then it is easy to conclude
that the whole concept of meaning is absurd
like the spirit in the vacuum

  Within the contextual mass it must thus be
that we begin from connectedness and assume constant turbulence,
ebb and tide, weather and conditions we are born into
as alien as our blood to us
this responsibility to create
with a freedom limited by nothing.
