May I Ask?
By Malkia Charlee NoCry
A rhapsody of currency
No log of memories, it just
endless worries, it just
flows, always temporary
Can I ask you what you’re seeing now?
And then next,
Can I ponder, what image has transfixed you
and has hidden itself in that eternal place,
That picture you paint?
It is incorrect to say anything is new
when it all is past…
As fleeting, as fleeting
as the silhouette of snowflakes
As grounding as thunder with no rain
May I ask you,
Do allow me to humbly beg the question…
What image has transfixed you
and hidden itself in the infinity of space
That you stop upon to gaze
When no one is looking
