loneliness is an art in the making

[from 19 oct 2005]

pleas(e) sent heaven-bound,
held up at nimbus gates
with neither turnaround
nor change in mental states.

prayer is as senseless
for the anointed
as it is for people like


i wait and wait for some
coronary ribbons separated,
teased out
tussled and tossed.
why be great and unhappy
when i could be weak
and wonderful?
why wait for the imminent
when i can craft
the end
why the curly bracket upon
the period that should provide
closure, hugging the bend
in a space
that should not even exist
{ ? }

loneliness is my given
depression is my downfall
understanding is my injection.
