Some Sort of Monologue

by James Morehead

the left hand corner

                            if life is random words are life
                                                                                                   runningmadlycaughtandgraspingforbreath
                                                                                                   hewrote
high in the sun
all light streams outward
leaving a point of darkness
and that is the end

                                                                                                                 when will we run out of questions

                                                                                     SOME
                                                                                     SORT
                                                                                       OF
                                                                               MONOLOGUE

                                                                  a middle ground where little runs
                                                                        wild but much is quiet
             crying doves
             a warning
             rainbow tears
             on white feathers

                                                                                      is it poetry or merely a stream of lettered symmetry
to one side he held her
quietly
instructing as told
unable to convince
                                                    is there a place where those who think live alone

                         there is no order
                         without confusion
                         there is no symmetry
                         without darkness
                         it you wait long enough
                         someone will knock
                         enter
                         and leave
                         saying nothing
                                                                                                                                                       who writes
is this enough


                                                                     the lowest usable space
