wwwwQualities of silence www10 April 2009

wwwwwI pursued so many qualities of silence
wwwwwputting you with the others in the image-holder
wwwwwall alike within the walls of the seamless carousel,
wwwwwwhere the inherent chance and worthlessness of beauty
wwwwwwere identical voids
wwwwwalways the same behind each mask,
wwwwwthe ripped-out terminals of fantasy software
wwwwwmarked and drilled on the flesh-tainted template.

wwwwwI missed my imagined lover and friend
wwwwwbut went on stripping out clones in mute grief
wwwwwwithin a smokescreen of echoing moulds
