Home Is Where The Art Is



What once worked
no longer works
and I don't know how
to make it.

Best teases.  Worst taunts.
Dormant, quiescent,
waiting for purpose.

Devoted to because.  I was.
Contraintuitive.
I am not your symbol!

Inconspicuous consumption.
A shop for every shape.
Monotonous monopolists.

Have nerve to never.
Brutality or sentimentality:
what else is there?

How can we notice, so many,
so much, the absences,
and the absence of absence?

Existence alone
is sufficient
for drama.
