Borders (Re-Submitted) Poem by Seamus O' Brian

Borders (Re-Submitted)

Rating: 5.0


Terrifying dimensions of infinity
Accuses this rectangle-
This black hole of possibility-
Tumultuous chaos of what might be

Belied by

Edges, so crisp, so tidy, so neat
Demarcate, not only, but also

Define

Four borders of reality

Beyond.

Empty! Shouts with accusation
Possibilities, infinite, tumbling
Paralyzing shards of permutation
This kaleidoscope cascading

Yet

Your barren rows
Unseeded fields
Unmarried harlots

Cry out for attention
In the hope of existence
Denied by the blankness
Of this eight and one half

- just so, no more-

By eleven by
whose decree
persists a mystery.
