Unveiling is child’s play

Night veils yet again hinting subtly at rot and day gets back to digging the roots:
the problematic of the East is shaken up from slumber; the child is now available.

The game of light and shadows hints subtly at joy making no excuse for the carnage:
the piling up of one inexhaustible crust of discarded flesh on another; the child responds.

Problem solving is child’s play, and as day betrays the child’s gleeful mourn it knows:
understanding the lot is not needed; only the play of light and shadows is its lot.

The child has no complaint no regret as it goes about imagining its mirthful art:
the problem is solved for the day; tomorrow we shall play again, shall we?

    understanding the lot is not needed; only the play of light and shadows is its lot….that’s almost fatalistic in its hoarse whisper… am glad you dug this up..it calls for many more readings!

    Agree.. have been dredging my archives…some of it was clearly written by a disturbed alien teenager on steroids.

  4. Yes, tomorrow we play again. πŸ™‚
