Straight Lines

Recommended Posts

But the shortest path between any two points

is not the point. A straight path does not exist

 

for all surfaces. Sour faces are not attractive.

In fact, no face exists for the humiliated

 

But that is pointless despite the pores.

The bottom line is a collection of points

 

under the table, a flat surface generous

with straight lines. Are there gay lines?

Thought-provoking, Joel. These two lines sum it up best:

 

... A straight path does not exist

 

for all surfaces ....

That stanza break is most effective. This line is most memorable:

 

In fact, no face exists for the humiliated ....

I hope all is well with you in the islands, in Southeast Asia.
