Intersection

Recommended Posts

Not wanting to lose his way

in the labyrinth of lines,

 

an intersection offers a distraction

from semantics and antics,

 

of word picks complying with rules,

assuming roles coerced on them

 

as symbols or signs isolated

from this and that.

 

But, how does one move away

off the fringes of a Venn diagram?

 

 

 

 

* Hi guys. It's been a while I know :-) I got one eye removed with cataract with one more to go and hopefully workload lightens up to get some time to visit here.

An intersection offers choices ... usually. The mention of the Venn diagram makes me think the speaker is averse to being socially mapped and engineered.

Thank you guys for the read. This short poem has many inspirations and interpretations depending on which metaphor stood strongest at reading time.

 

@DC, I'm glad you had fun reading it :-)
