Here? Here-ish?

Modernity skates on the ice of the present
demanding a hole beyond the past

the water is colder than the way
as dignity is an aesthetic experience

just as shame is more real than pain
where words make up the web of life

spiders crawl onto the eyes of the observer
taking flies out of the observer

compliant mystery solves itself
quarter turn a book on shelf

insect fortitude life is short
where we are concert retort.
