Abstractions Poem by Lento Maez


Waiting wearily rugged rhinoceros
Abhor wispy and windy reptiles
Slithering silently on webbed feet
Across verdant deserts whispering
Obnoxious love songs to hummingbirds
That flitter backwards below bandanas
Worn by giraffes walking carefully
Across ponds filled with slithering snails
How is that possible you ask in wonder
It’s just an abstraction don’t try to ponder
What’s meaningless meanders mindlessly
Meaning that abstractions are like fractions
They are hard to cipher

    Vague - you think

    abstract
    to the point of absurd
    is like a word unwritten
    and the meaning unheard

    like nothing against
    the whole the wide the world

    like absolute
    a non-inclusive thought
    of what the whole
    the wide
    the world
    merely forgot
