Apart from these forms
our world is empty
created by hands and minds
means of suggestion
allegorical renderings
responding to a crisis
pulling out, what is real for us
in synthesis or crude content
structured roughly, stuck
together with felt emotion
disclosure of denial, hidden
in metrical patterns caught
shapes that orient, disguise
the labyrinth of thought.
