Needed treatment for stomach pain

Somewhat stoically

Before I Lose

Scattered by the wind,
The variously textured fragments of my tale
I have just narrated
Fly about like many dry crushed blades of grass.
Who is to mend them?
Does anyone care?
Maybe  
The one who remembers their chaff and side. 
A difficult task it...Read More

to the disowned children of an orphanage,
told me he enjoyed sharing his borrowed time,
but didn’t know he borrowed from whom,
for he hadn’t seen the time keeper.

Never Too Late To Say "I Love You" Until...

One full scarlet moon ago,
in a region of a million stones

with many stories to be told
using a portable sun
some wake up

and gather the others
Opening their books, ears listen carefully

In fact, to think deeper,
about most things.

Premium Member A Philosophical Predicament
Philosophers, down the ages,  
Have strenuously tried
To figure out language:
Their numerous narratives polarize 
Into two Grand narratives, a binary:
Language is referential / differential.
This binary has yielded numerous derivatives.

On the referential side, for instance, 
There’s the view that language is...Read More

Amphisbaena
Amphisbaena 

She approached from behind
Argus-eyed on both ends
Stalking her early morning prey.
The Queen of arid lands
Amphisbaena by thy name
Amphisbaena by thy nature.

Her victim was an Ariel 
Do-eyed and fragile.
With an anguilliform  leap
She maneuvered her prey in her grip.
