A Soft Cosh

“Above the cloud with its shadow is the star with its light.”
―Pythagoras

A Soft Cosh

by Carmen H Gray

Two ends meet

Where one side

Is congruent to the other

Twin sides feel

The heavy pull

Bringing the center point

To the same place each time

Whether it be

The delicate silver chain of today

Or the mauve-colored silk string of yesterday

It falls upon you

Hyperbolic

Each time

No Fear Here

“There’s a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure truth.”
―Maya Angelou

No Fear Here

by Carmen H Gray

Correlation does not equal causation

Therefore, your extension of fear

Is your absolute right, not an aberration

At least that’s how you can justify

Our collective disentegration

Because you must protect yourself

From a self-induced violent escalation

In this country birthed from rape and guns

We have created our own damnation

The past is not that

It is present in each generation

Whispering “this is from whence you came”

A closed circuit of continuous rotation

But what was closed by the hand of others

Can be opened anew by confrontation

Splintering into another

Incarnation
