Frayed Images (Day 507)


labyrinth of words  we say 
the thumb-wide sentences
frayed images  though wonderous  
provoking  are incapable  unsuited 
to our dreams  to constellate 
our inner skies  mighty pens 
make mayhem but uniting 
what has been torn asunder 
by the lies takes a finer touch  
a surgeon’s steady hand 
and deft wit  that waning  wanting 
quality being drained by screens 
and screens and careless isolating
screens  was ever love illumined 
by a blue backlit glow  (dashboard 
green and gold we know full well)  
no matter  stitch by stitch we piece 
and join  one’s floral meeting dots 
and stripes  abutting sentences  we 
don’t make sense  we can’t
we don’t make sense these days
