parameters

chaos alone is
less constructive
than that which
fluctuates within
the parameters of
the norm---like a 
bomb ticking, like
a blade sharpening,
like a rebel waiting in
the jungle---knowing
the lines within which
one colors, so that the
lines can be broken---
create & destroy, destroy
to create, breaking down
all that was---smashing
all things retro but never
claiming pure originality
for anything---knowing all
is a pastiche, knowing that
we all consciously/unconsciously
have been sampling &
repeating, memorizing &
dwelling in the beauty of the
cultures around us,
which bring us a reason to
keep on pushing the rock up the
hill, 
eroding
eroding
eroding
the hill itself,
for the biggest parameter of all
is that obstacle 
smack dab in front of 
oneself &
it needs to be
obliterated.
