ad infinitum

on
one day
               people may stop

          living by the even scream

of life                 filed                    as paperwork

taxonomy
                       finally
                                       diagnosed
                   
                    - unhelpful

to join their uncomplaining siblings

                sitting by a stream


A. H / K. H-H (13th June 2020)

Written at a Lapidus HOTT zoom workshop – it’s not something unknown, though unknown by many and forgotten by many who know (including me), this poem reacts to a poem called Living Space by Imtiaz Dharker and to the discussion I joined arriving late and as ever needing to slow down.
