a common thread

there is danger
in the landscape
of meaningless symbols.


but what about
(are there) meaningful ones?


the rope that ties your boat to shore.
the umbilical cord that keeps you fed.
your rock of gibraltar.
the ball and chain.


what is it of

this collection of colors?
the eigengrau.
the time we trace.
the fear that

                                                                            this

is everything.


and is it enough

to leave our mark

buried beneath a rock?
