He paused at the blank page
field of white, digital sheet
to sketch out a new strategy
plan of development, rubble
and trouble of war left behind
storage rooms of memories
shut, locked up, the furniture
faded photos, dusty paintings
antique appliances left for
rats and cats to move about
time to design modern innovation
instant communication, the planetís
every crevice and crack exposed
forms and faces reaching out, hurt
and calling, short spaces somebody
needs to remember, whirl in image mix
of colors and ink across a link, to open
regions, where a body experiences
a force, result of presence of others
gravity of feelings, magnetic moments
weight of desires, ratio of, describing
fundamental interactions, to bring out
capabilities, cause possibilities to expand
elaborate details, undergo differentiation
evolve, until another world becomes evident.
