An Exercise in Futility

Post by JadedHopes » Sun Nov 16, 2008 9:26 pm

An Exercise in Futility

I miss
weighted fingertips
pressed firmly
against the base of my neck
that unadulterated ignorance
of accustomed equilibrium
the complexities of simplicity
choking on words
instead of silence

so I looked to you
at you
to get myself back
to an avenue
devoid of gray
where natural never faced neutral
self-stimulating
with the dichotomy of memory
I only cheat myself

but maybe this recession
is misnomer’s
voluntary victim
concealing an intermission
between
years and months and days and decades
manipulations of calculations
futile as Manhattan rain
no limits. just edges. - Jackson Pollack

I like the way you worked this one out, a nice read...
The wheels of time
how ever slow
speeds up
as we grow
