Artifact

I listen for the crystal
Chimes of running streams
Though none ever lived

Here and no fragrances
To ponder, save the dust of
Decaying grains in a

Field untended and
Condemned to neglect,
But I’m still standing

A statistical artifact
Erected into prime vertical
Dimensions paused in

Finite abeyance at the
Portal to my non-beingness
Yet, I will not grieve

“We must not accept the proposition that a relationship with a government, political organization, religion, belief system, corporation, geographical border, or even family constitutes an irreducible primary. The irreducible primary is the human species, and this fact is firmly established by the unique composition and determinative influences of human beings relative to all that exists.”
