Screen : Play :: Open : Weigh

What can a pair of shoulders bear
infinitudes of information (of suffering
rage anger horror terror) lead lives 
that need you to hear what they have 
to say; will the will to know break
the dam?

Consciences demand a supply
whether recommended by economists
or rejected by philosophers, the headline
sinks under the mass of angles, novels
could sink a thousand ships, whether 
Odysseus found her face or Icarus took up
chess instead of flying.
