Bickering Reflections

Bickering Reflections

Despair rides winds in a sky full of ravens, and in our cities and our towns, blind and deaf but not yet dumb, we sit and bicker.

Deliciously seditious, tangentially sidereal, cerulean. What’s the opposite of omniscient? Sagacious sages long gone, we sit and bicker.

Magenta strives with amber and amber with azure, prurience with abstinence, neither truly pure. Fury fomenting stupidity, we sit and bicker.

All the world’s a stage. The actors vanished, dusty props and faded backdrops and echoes and shadows wait while in the audience, we sit and bicker.

Dithering, underrated as an art form, deliberate dithering, not the incidental variation, perhaps a science or an undisciplined discipline, and still, we sit and bicker.

All the world’s a stage. The actors vanished, dusty props and faded backdrops and echoes and shadows wait while in the audience, we sit and bicker.

Magenta strives with amber and amber with azure, prurience with abstinence, neither truly pure. Fury fomenting stupidity, we sit and bicker.

Deliciously seditious, tangentially sidereal, cerulean. What’s the opposite of omniscient? Sagacious sages long gone, we sit and bicker.

Despair rides winds in a sky full of ravens, and in our cities and our towns, blind and deaf but not yet dumb, we sit and bicker.
