What dreams have I- locked-

in some yellowing Scroll-

that Others will discover- nod-

or- ignore Them- all-



Am I built of

more than flesh?

Then, what will remain

when I’m laid to rest?


A Heart of Pure gold,

and Ivory bones?

Or Papers and Books,

and a Will like Stone?

Today’s date

attached to four names

I don’t recognize.

And I wonder

about names

attached to headstones,

about futures

attached to children

along with memories.

And these are people

who will only be remembered if

they fall under these circumstances-

if they had children,

if they are a character in someone’s story.

We remember historical figures

and celebrities

because of their national renown,

but who remembers

the little people

with their names printed


in newsprint?

Stare at the page

wondering what cosmic rules will

leap out of black numerals

and formulate sense-

then- ponder

how nature is frozen into fractals

and patterns,

and that you may not have

the solution,

but you uncover wonder just

by trying to find it.
