End of poetry is a new generation of poets
millennium of words multiplied
streets and seashores stacked as chords
harmony of trees, forest glens surrounded
staff and signatures of each breath or sigh
of love and fear, stress of hourís demands
compressed in black lines and dots of ink
digitized in a buzz of static, unfolding pixels
in images of memory, sirens in sleep
conjure conversations of embedded character
moments of decision delayed into indecision
destiny redirected into primitive beats
sounds without meaning, broken pieces
of phonemes, unintelligible grunts and awes
unlinked morphemes, linguistic units set free
prepared for the meeting of critics and judges
of phenomenon without basis in their reality
only hidden movements in a subconscious
imagination, of Godís wandering prophets.
