Shadows And Thinning Spaces
Horror vacui

Low giants
Chased across the sky
Briefly shadow
The bright intersection,
My full face,
Inside this glass cage.

Just moments ago, bouncing men
Inside strange trucks embarked.
Now gritty with be-goggled intent,
They oil angry metal gear
Before the spark.
Their ripcords ignite impulses
Out of my control.
An aggressive symphony a-hum,
A-stir, thins spaces
Between me, neighbors
And that insistent interstate.

If I close the window,
I’ll still hear
Their leafy goodbyes —
Crescendos of severed limbs
Echo my discontent, and
A muted, buzzing chorus
While the loudest bass instrument
Grinds
With no chord progression to finish.

Blind to man’s brutal persistence,
In this coffee-scented space,
An incipient void where
Pale hours permeate a vacuum,
Hopeless. I'll never leave
In one piece.
I need shadows just as much
As the light.


Let’s not kill what is necessary for convenience

FreeVerse: 34 lines
Round 76 Shadows and Light Poetry Contest no show
Now twice unawared...who knows why.
I'll add one important mentor's uncertainty of poem to this list. (1/18/20)

One of three poems in hands of editors (both aged and midwestern). Let's hope. (1/15/20)

Inspiration

I know everything and nothing about physics, as if that's all there was to it.

I don't want to say I'm the incipient void, redundant. It's because I'm becoming one with emptiness and this place that dehumanizes me.
