Because

I get sentimental
because...
I don’t know the answers,
for sure,
sometimes
I think it’s all
ornamental;
life and it’s meaning,
the myth of dying,
then re-living....
could it be simple....
.......ending...
a star flashing,
disintegrating
through space
without an emotional face,
or the pretence of a race,
is it just mental retribution
....hopeful gymnastics,
stretched like elastics,
self serving constitution,
a setting above,
beyond natures order
to satisfy human fodder
that pacifies,
centralizes,
social stability ,
promoting,
the weaker class,
of nobility...
an invisible chain
within a charm
that holds....
a silent name
only because
my ignorance....
is the cause.
conditioned,
saturated....
endless condemnations
repetitive,
  subjective
recitations;

.......then it’s beyond
the pass.....
the myth, or, or,
lives for another eon,
for I can’t find the ore,
to row....
“between”
concrete and abstract,
a dream obscene,
because,
  because,
because....
