possessed
by words
            yet
             discourse-less
                implicit
                 intuition
meandering
in a
web of language
            a whirling
            vortex of
            silent words
strangely
laconic
        a tapestry
the plaintive
&oblique
          intertwined
the detritus
of yesterdays
        scattered over
the stutter
       of time

happenings
high points
of drams
           self-enlarging
onto
contrived
corridors
            symbolism
touchstones
of childhood
&death
          abstracts
          in mode&tone
clusters
of repeated
thought
        of the
        vernacular
themes
juxtaposed
        in imagery
confessions
of decay
          &despair
fables
of meaning
           orchestrated
           organised
in ballads
of personages
           issues
           elucidated
           declaimed
the constant
delusion
of the soul
         in explicit
         contrasts
echoes
of feeling
         in conversations
          back&forth
the minutiae
of the
       domestic day
direct
expressions
         of the
          intuitive
philosophical
spectating
       crowding
        the mind
modulating
the present
         of an alien
          world
a truth
beyond
       beyond
           our
             remit
