Four Ways of Literacy


I
The words float, encompassing
Tall tales of talented, tenacious, terrible… tails
Sucked through a portal of unescaping bliss
A mind, an ocean
A vast sea of natural, noble--empty
II
A burning bomb of paper
Trash cans filled with legacies
Abominable words of adversarial, aggressive, anxieties
A reality, an ugliness
A mirror reflecting fragmented pieces of barley a whole
III
Look of dread
Unexplainable, unanswerable, ubiquitous dying arts
Valleys of tables filled with papers bound--6"x9"
A silence, welcomed
A bustling, busy, bothered world… quiet here
IV
Black symbols color the white background
Laughability of laudable, lavish, literacy
Sucked through a portal of unescaping impossibility
A mind, yearning
A vast sea of devotion, dedication--trapped
