Text

Semblances of lines and curves that bond
to each other with nothing more than air.
Why must we search for meanings far beyond
the denotative poignancy they bear?
They are nothing more than random letters,
strung much like beads upon a cautious thread.
Yet we find need to make them characters
that perform a strange play inside our head.
And line by line, they lose more meaning still.
So overused and under-publicized,
they cannot be forced to do any will
but what is theirs. We should not be surprised
when what we try to say does not come out,
and what we say leaves reasonable doubt.
