Indetermination/ Extermination


say language was the wrong response

definition the converse solution

with origins in the pronounced miscomprehension

of existence sentenced without expression


vernacular may merely be

a mutant variant evolved synonymously

with the communal cryptic intuition

that labels enable manipulation


we consume cubic volumes of happiness,

tuck thermometers under lovesick tongues,

evaluate melancholy in so many secretive tears,

and interchange these fallacies for fiscal slips of contradiction


so being is bound by unambiguous brevity

experience limited by lexiconic insufficiency

while indefinable singularities

author enigmatic identities

composed of both one sole solid whole

& a whole structure of fractal complexity;

extensive indirection assuredly

converging to a dimensionless void

& enveloping simultaneous infinity


words cannot constrain chaos

or coerce insistent eccentricities

to coincide authentically


stuttering devices, they inflect sustainable silence;

their harsh artificial declarations

abbreviate organic diffusion unnaturally


tame simplifications, they demean real immensities;

underqualified magnitudes request the exemption

to quantify abstraction arbitrarily


time proceeds, phonetic

articulated along vague discourse


history stagnates, poetic mistakes

pooling while passive revisionaries

contaminate its defenceless tributaries


intonations of frustration punctuate

the elusive rooted present

for imperfect translations frequently

misinterpret internal frequencies


a lyrical mystery of fluent uncertainty

the implicit future insinuates

compounding & appending unendingly

repeated prefixed apprehensions


for even the boldest phrases

recognize their evident inabilities

to elucidate phases unforetold


captivated by this construct we called civilisation

we vociferously try to inscribe

every unique incommunicable affirmation

against the manifest obstination

of confirmed mortality
