unknown

there is a yearnful parting
that never came to be

we search for it without notice
whether or not an illusion

never knowing if each met
will ever be the ONE

as understudys eager to be betrayed as us.

two strangers never encountered
convinced they will know:
innately, irrevocably

and as they contemplate thus
seemingly guaranteed in deed

each pass the other
remaining one less unknown.

wretched troll

wretched troll
with your slimy scroll

why must you tell me
all that
i must never know?

Meticulously you have written my cursed fall
your flickering tongue my rueful name repeatedly calls

why must you speak of
all that
I must deny to know?

Gleefully my heart, you continue grasping
your vile words in my ear, stay rasping

why must you sing of
all that
i must fight to know?

trampling my fresh grave, you twirl and dance
ramming dirt into breaths of chance

why must you prophetize
all that
i must die to know?
