Goodnight Vienna

The square root that they can’t connect with
the give that they can’t live with
and the life that they won’t part with.

we could be
by some quirk of evolution
or by man and his

are as diverse as the river that splits at the
silt line
or as the time that goes on yet stands still.

When will I learn that the universe turns on an
old iron spike?

like this on Facebook or don’t give it a second look
it makes no difference.
