Hints




If all is necessary,
what is gained by playing it out?
What is achieved by fulfillment
of the inevitable?

Feral guilt
rummaging for remnant
reminiscences of responsibility
among memories adopted
from abandoned acts.

From rules to instructions
to suggestions, hints.

Oracles are open,
but it is unclear whether they have been opened
or broken to leak.

We all live bare in brothels
and are expected to produce.
A lavender girl, a turquoise guy.
Uncaringly garish.
Deceivingly peevish.
Gathering components for deployment.
The clash and resultant clutter.

The words are nothing!
and they are all I have
and it is almost enough.
