My world has come crashing down on top of me
like the Eastern front of Belarus
where the Nazis took so much
where they massacred my family

I've worked so hard all these years
just for fate to decide that I'm unworthy
of any type of love or safety
I am now being burned inside my own home
I can hear laughing outside

My family always told me how scared they were
that I would be alone in this world
that they would never see me happy

Unfortunately the oracle was right

what I want, that's what she gives --

me as her advice.

in other worlds..." he corrected himself -

"The being in constant astonishment in other worlds - words, dies. Starves from too much food."

such astonishment to be unlearned in the meeting of two friends on a bench,
the opening of curtains to a blue-gold sky
the sheer pleasure of creating a world -
- and a person and a FEELING
from a black-inked nib and a white scratched page

trapped alone in astonishment, a seer
Cassandra of ordinary happenings.

look at the living that is being LIVED!
- and never believed.
