Star Ka'at's Ramblings











{May 23, 2013}   Caution

Caution is staple
Diet bland and steady
Open the wound
Sew closed again

Circles squared off
Opacity all knowing
Lies all showing
Truth all damning

It takes two for dance
Only one to abandon
Breathe in sacred scent
Devour precious text

Advertisements


I like these three lines very much:

“Opacity all knowing
Lies all showing
Truth all damning”

It’s very enigmatic, and I’m not sure what it means, but it *feels* true. That’s poetry! The last stanza also really grabs you … relating sacred scents with texts with dancing … excellent.



Matt, thanks so much for the comment! I really appreciate the feedback. Enigmatic truth, lines without perfect clarity, are sometimes the only way to express a thing with no name.
