The Other Derelict


Again the song, now sanshin accompaniment.
It's getting there. Sanshin can be difficult, an excuse.
But the difficulty reflects remaining in quarantine.
The other day on Zoom, everyone said the same thing - losing
track of time, not knowing what day it is. What I reference
as thud or flat, nothing unique in that. None of us are
unique. How many of us have thought about suicide? Woke up
in tears in the middle of the night? Desired the annihilation
of this administration that has killed and sullied so many?
The words are clearer below, someday we will get it right.

Azure's song the song DERELICT

If there were
There would be
If there is
There was
{For no one
{And no place
Scattered topologies

At times there seemed
A place or where
An origin
Would be
{If there were
{There was not
A place where place would be

There were lines
Among lines
There was a place
{There were curves
{To hold something
A memory of a place

Names float
And disappear
Signs leave
Have never been
{In or out
{Nothing remains
A moment embedded in space
