Epochè


by Gary Percesepe


"the sad devotion of flagellants" ~ Thomas Lux

  

Ignore for now the

quotidian humiliations

jacked-up recriminations

specious allegations

retorts & retaliations

the batshit commentariat

hurls

  

pass over

into new terrors

 

grey mongrel fears

filthy vermin

political appointees

 

 

 

                                                                        until

 

 

you happen

onto a lily pad

 

 

lined with nutrients


                                    a scrim of grace

 

 

stained with memory

 

life,

            itself
