The Twain - Poem by douglas scotney

There is a worker in clarity
extending what is there,
and one who is aware
what is isn't there.

There's something
about something
that isn't there.

Some
have to try to reach it
with extension
(the realm of the clear,
I might mention) .

    Does it have to be reached? Or just sought to be reached? To seek to clarify may lead on or limit the pursuit by its end. Clarity is sought but the idea of it being nothing is truly something. Agreed. (Report) Reply
