The End of a Line
Oh, PDFs of fragments of
Sappho. Oh, gods. I didn't expect
to touch heaven — just to preview
this file. Now, a panorama of a
coast, eclipsing blemish. Recall
a video. I finish when I recline,
forgetting facts. You can’t tell me
this all’s reversible; to
dream’s to invent a memory; to
share, to fill a cave. Indigo
abstract: lacked concentration, then
made clenched jaw. Choice: get a job,
or listen to the ads. No path to
great Olympos, for humans — Always
almost. Forgive me, before moving
I must stare at a wall. Historicize now, or
serialize a symptom. Put that on a pen.
