THIS IS A COLLECTION OF SHORT POEMS UNDER A SINGLE TITLE


XLII. i've romanticized glass
as black liquid
which remains the poison of the human mind.
         some say, only despair shall be found in nothingness.
how could such a thing be?
when nothingness is the essence of possibility,
to those who remain with a purpose.

What did you think when you read that? What did you feel? Even if it was the most unintelligible scene or incomprehensible nonsense, tell me, please. I'd like to know.

    Wow, that's the most beautiful line I think I've read. I know in your bio you said you write 'fast pieces' - but it's clear you put a lot of work into them, and thought.
