Extremities

Going to the Desert
is the old term

'landscape of zeros'

the glitter of edges
again catches the eye

to approach these swords!

lines across which
being vanish / flare

the charmed verges of presence




TRACK

Old, nagging sense of 'Far enough!'
What are you afraid of?
*
To lose track of...
*
Lost at sea

Lost
in thought




RIDDLE

this same riddle:
IS IT ALRIGHT?

qualm that persists
on the bus ride

"Tonight there's
the movie"
a woman soothes her son

bu even in an audience
comes -
was it the first thought?
