Silhouettes

the dusty silhouettes
of trivial disappointments
contrived in obese sophist-ication
subjected to bitter attacks
by half-witted critics
the quacks of analysis
wrangling in the insignificance
of their oblique insights

while the naked simplicity of truth
slithers out of reach
and yet manifests itself
in the various shades
of our own absurdity

it unveils itself in minute portions
and leaves no answers whole
nor unassaulted

but in joyful moments
truth appears
and shatters the prismic vision
of our isolated hopes
when our private little portion
of the world
begins to ache and seethe
revealing its own inadequacy
