Shifting Solubles

the existence of known solubles
be they spiritual, molecular or imaginary
derivations, vain or divine

By chance, plot or plan

take maternity shops for example
pay phones
bill of rights?
alarm clocks
looking up from our handheld
electronic god to greet passersbys

purge our souls

    I genuinely love your style of writing, it is fresh and unique; it honestly inspires me! What I really love is the ending line- you couldn't have ended this poem more perfectly!
