Hermetic language – a poem for our time by Jeff Walker, Life Surfer

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:21 am by aleksan

Hermetic language

The mirror swallows your words
It’s reflection an ephemeral form
Speechlessness
A semantic relationship
Written in water
Between nothing and nothing
The inner monologue
Of endless transitions
Asserting in the desire to forget
It’s possessiveness
The gradual acquisition
Of impatient and invisible fury
Breaks but still remains
The immanence of all things
Defends itself
The consistency of treacle
Trickles infinite interruptions
Until bored I move on
Until I return
To play
