IMPERFECT REFLECTIONS
(3/20/13)


I stare
at the glowing
white
in front
of me
feeling
as empty
as the page

then
I begin
to lay
the letters
down
in precarious
proximity
looking
for a hint

a clue

to some
sort
of salvation

I gave
up
long ago
on the notion
of entertaining

elucidating

there
are so many
who are beter
able
to accomplish
those ends

their journeys
while interesting
sadly offer
no permanent solutions
for my condition

apparently
I am not
a leader
or
a follower

strange

of the countless
places
to search

this seems
the only
logical
venue

I look
in the continuing
keystrokes
for an answer
to the question
of myself
