Unopposed Oxymoron

Unopposed Oxymoron

This poem is light as a heavy contradicting complement
and rhymes with no correspondence of sound sharp at
the cutting horizon’s edge of melting confusing fission

Serious like a foolish jester and in trivial necessity it wants 
to be chimed in disagreement discordant harmony figure
of speech silent shapeless tallies and out into central periphery

Traditional post-modern as an anchor less mooring unbound
a planar linear Oxo cube for poetry soups soaps speechless
rhetoric it says nothing’s everything all for refutation and proof

Cut as a half witted razor blade dull as laser bred dull diamond
the oxymoron in proximal distance joins divisions idiotic
intelligence bland precision in amorphous diffused clarity

I am nothing but and everything as I know to know nothing
where healthy insanity and clear normal madness when 
condensed reflection and prismatic diffusion meets parting

My initial final backfiring telos in idle lazy effort’s endeavour in 
rhyme and in lightness dissonant un-melodic featherless burden
is that being at different places in different times in the same
space and same moment is not an oxymoron but debatable truth

Written on 27th August in Johannesburg dateless timeless 
and nowhere with a blank mind and mindful disregard
