52 – Open and Unfettered

chains upon the ground
a way out
won’t be found

or locked and chained
a hard-swallow
gulp next

discarded characters on the ground
waiting to be used
by an unlettered society

the Tibetan loses himself
to oneness and zeroness
writes his self-elegy

they embrace each other
with abandon
became slaves of passion

a con, a shell game, an illusion
folding unencumbered
from the heavy obstructed lines
design without function

open and unfettered
often and under-prepared
inconceivable overspending
on the G20 travesty

anxious and unlettered
useless floating in October wind
