A Sense of Momentum

“The starting point of critical elaboration is the consciousness of what one really is.”

— Antonio Gramsci




Voilà, l’artiste

in paint-splattered cargo pants,

faded black shirt & geeky black glasses;

love’s targets implode

as you’re lighting a smoke –

& the drift of the tale

is just phasing past

the random waste of memory –

can you feel it?

“Citizen, tonight you’ll be history!”

“My place of desire!”
