Eternities Maw

endless searching
mismatched hang nailed
skin torn off fright
	knaw
knaw long and hard, boning the contention
of rightness

wane maiden without Diogenes’ light

Raison d'être
not

the tick to his tock
the dickory to your dock

nursed on pointless precipices
role stretched on crosses of martyrdom
nail driven 	by a biological clock

maid and man
made
staid

abandon fills the cup
passion petals the beatified hull
dispersal unifies
an Id-less
I



This is what I see to be the heart of Catie Lindsey’s Dream Walker's Destinal
a search for self in an endless universal of possibilities where unity means loss
 of ego ie: self.

    The ego. superego and the irrevocable id...can lead to arrogance that breeds hostility? BUT it doesn't seem to have the same context here.:) This is more tender and melancholy...sighhhhh Beautifully done, Debs! love, Mikki

    Oh this is my style :) just so few appreciate free verse here, this is what's being published if Catie had the energy for submitting I'm sure she would have oodles of takers, but, you have to do it like it's a JOB [one without pay too] it's a #'s game
